Decor To Die For: Cake Stands!!! Be still our drooling hearts!

So we are all mucho well aware about the eye catching, lip licking, head spinning beauty of a cake. Layers of sweet buttercream sandwiched between soft light chunks of delectible, moist decadent cake.

OH GOD! Not an easy thing for a pregnant girl to type in the wee hours of the morning! GET ME SOME CAKE!!!!

Hee hee...but we digress (WE! I can't believe the jinxies are both pregs at the same time!!...Oppps sorry! I digress again...) ...cakes are gorgeous on their own, yes, but who wants to shove such a tasty treat into tupperware or serve it in a cake box covered in day old frosting (that is from dipping our fingers in in the box in the middle of the night) ?

Solution??? Cake Stands!!!

The Martha in all of us knows how amazing they look and the recessionista we strive to be has found super rad ones that we would be proud to display on a dining table, kitchen counter, or bed side table..hee hee.

Here are a few of our new faves...but trust us you can find amazing ones all over the place!

Let's start with the reason for the post.

My grandma bought us an unbelievable babka from Bea's Bakery and even torn open from the inside out (starving!) it is gorgeous and mouth watering. But stuck in a stinky box?

No thanks!

We need this! Clean, covered, clear and sexy! Adding this to the island...ASAP!

It keeps your sweets out of the mouths of bugs, cats, lazy family members :)

But the rest are A-mazing for serving sweet treats to your loved ones and for special occasions...we swear...they will even make your treats taste better!

Go vintage! Nothing says special delivery like a gorgeous milk glass (vintage or made to look vintage) cake stand!

We are dying for this pink one!!!

And um how fucking cute is this peppermint chocolate layer cake perched upon this gorge green milk glass stand?!?!?!

Get yours here!

Perfect for the holidays!

Wanna put a coconut layer cake high on display in the cutest way?

This blue stand is the one for you!!!

Dear Pottery Barn...we super heart your Emma stand!

Soooo perfect!

And the piece de resistance...we found this perfect tea cake tiered number in a rad store and our hearts skipped a beat or two or three.

Then we saw the price! Lucky for us our mama was right there with us and said "I'll make one for you!".
So we did...we collected vintage cups and plates, a bit of gorilla glue and voila! A simple and inexpensive yet super rad tiered cake stand!

Thanks Mom!

Are you an au natural gal? A barefoot on the beach bride? Good! Now you can make your own plate out of a tree stump! Etsy (of course) has the DIY

So simple, soooo goddess-y.

So what ever cake or treats you like, how ever you eat them, place them on a pretty little stand first...we promise it will make them taste better ;)
But cake platters can be used for soooo many decor dilemmas! Not just storing the delectible deliciousness of a cake.

We have been know to pile them on our kitchen island and counters to hold fruit, flowers, cute salt and pepper shakers, books, candy...what ever cuteness you have laying out!

xoxo things we heart

I have a collection of white cake stands. I find most of them at Target and Marshall's!

You guys are freaking me out now! I'm a bake-aholic and I've been looking for a cute, vintage porcelain cake stand for a while now!! It's crazy how you two (or four actually awww) always know what's going on in my life. TWH is a magical place on the internet. <3
