HMM?

Hey Lady,


Just wanted to know who you are having do your cake? Rossmoor? I just found out that we might need to rent a cake stand(for $50?!?!) and wondered if your bakery is providing one and how much it is? It's just ridiculous how no one told us about this at the time or that we even needed one. Maybe we don't even need one and they tell you you do so they can make more $$$


Anyone else renting an over-priced cake stand? Is this even necessary?


Thanks!(she says while pulling her hair out)

I had my cake through rossmoor and I didn't rent a cake stand (PIB). I had an outdoor ceremony and I'm glad I didn't get the cake stand because it would have looked too formal and would have been out of place. They tied a ribbon that matched the ribbon on my cake.

Yah- were using Rossmoor and they are WAY overpriced!  As of now we are not going to have a cake stand, if I can rent/ buy one for cheaper I may get one. Maybe someone can make one for us haha and we can just cover it with something- like fabric?


I want this- but with red accents- BUT I have a round cake boooo  So Im not sure how I can incoporate this???

Ok, thanks ladies. We'll forget the darn cake stand and save the $50.


 


HMM- I love that photo. I had seen it before and thought, "Whoa...cool" I wonder how many of those square containers it would take to achieve that? Anyone know?

depends on the size of your cake i am sure. But you could just put a plain box in the middle that is the same height as the holders and just put holders around the outside.

You use 4x4 vases typically and you can spread them a part a little- so just get the demensiosn of your cake! Im having a hard time finding cheap ones though- didn't know a piece of glass costs so much haha


Anyway, they put a board under our cakes so I thought they can do a square one to cover all the votives, then just decorate around the bottom of the cake so it doesn't look so wierd, you know?


Could this work ladies???
