Take a look at these beautiful cake stands. That is if you can see past the skyline of sweets. I absolutely love this photo. Love it. I wish I could enlarge it and wallpaper my kitchen with it. This photo and the rest in this post (taken by Ashley Rose Photography) are photos of cakes from my friend Melody’s shop, My Sweet & Saucy. We’ve been internet buds from way back when I had a blogspot.com address. And since then, she’s gone from blogger herself, to superstar baker, making the most gorgeous cakes and working with the likes of Tori Spelling, Miley Cyrus and more. I just wish she wasn’t all the way in California. Actually, it’s a good thing I’m not in driving distance. For my waistline anyway.
Oh dear. I need a pink ruffle cake in my life.
Look at all these cakes. I mean pedestals. Big ones. Little ones. Tall ones. Short ones.
Melody also has an online store where you can find them all in one place.
Yes, pedestals. Like this pretty little pink one. Perfect for a petite little cake.
Or stack two and you can fill it with sweet little treats.
Wait, you mean you don’t have a large and small pink glass pedestal or a sweet glass dome?
That’s terrible. Unthinkable.
Would you like one? I mean all three pieces in the photo above?
I thought you might.
Melody is giving them away to one of my readers. Yippee! Thanks Melody!

They are 8, 5, & 3 so it was super cute and childish.
We celebrated what we call “Lung Day” – the 7th anniversary of my father-in-law’s surgery for lung cancer. They had to remove one of his lungs, but he’s doing great – and each year, we make a lung shaped cake! Gross I know – but it’s a definite celebration of life! :)
