I love making cakes especially for birthdays, parties, and special events. I'm not talking easy cakes from a Duncan Hines box, I'm talking about four layer cakes with multiple fillings, glazes, ganaches, frostings, and garnishes. I know when I've made a great cake when the final product takes the breath away from my guests, my mother says, WOW, and my father goes back for late night seconds and thirds. An epic cake of these proportions needs beautiful, mouth-watering presentation. Unfortunately I don't own a single cake platter or cake stand! This problem must be remedied by the time I'm in the mood to make my next cake. I can't be a well respected hostess/cook/food blogger without at least two cool cake plates. It's off to market time! Please scour the web for the most glamorous cake plates/stands/platters around and save them in the Yum Market on TeamSugar. Tag your platters with the keywords, Cake Plate. I am looking forward to seeing what you discover!
