Quick cake stand
I love baking and have been coveting cake stands for months now, but I simply couldn't justify spending lots of cash on something I really wouldn't use very frequently. I saw an idea on Betz White's blog a while back about making a cake stand from glass plates and since then I've been scouring my favourite local charity shops for suitable components. I knew the citizens of Saffron Walden wouldn't let me down and eventually I found a plate and a candle holder and got to work with some ridiculously sticky glue:
It took a long, long time to dry (and of course wasn't ready in time for me to use it at a tea party on Sunday) but it turned out well:
The glue join is a bit visible, but when it has a cake on it you'd never know.
That's a redcurrant meringue pie - which is both sweet and tart and a very great summer (ha! that's a joke) treat.
£1.50 vs lots of money - I'm happy!
