My latest little project began with a find at the Goodwill several months ago. This little ceramic pedestal.
It's 'cute' but just not anything I would use, even though I love tulips.
I've been looking for a cake stand everywhere. Never finding just what I wanted for this frugal gals price. Last weekend I had an 'ah ha' moment, grabbed this little baby and gave her a new coat of Antique White spray.
Take one large free platter from my mom (it was free to her too) and Voila!
"New" cake pedestal plate for $1.30
The bottom rim of the plate sits perfectly atop the pedestal!
No, I haven't glued it down, yet. Trying to decide if I want to attach it permanently.
What's a new cake plate without a cake?
So let's whip one up.
This is a new recipe for me. It's called Gram's Best Brown Sugar Cake from Kraft Foods.
The recipe link is HERE.
I opted not to put the powdered sugar on top of mine.
Teen daughter and I had a piece tonight right AFTER I made the photos.
