I guess I have a little bit of Aunt Jemima and Betty Crocker in me. I just love to bake, and cook, and make the food look tasty and beautiful all at the same time. I love entertaining friends in our home, because it gives me a chance to make everything look special.
A new serving tool that my husband got for me, is my cupcake stand. It takes 13 cupcakes, that would normally sit on a large platter or plate, and turns them into a tasty tower of treats! I love to stack cupcakes up this way, because it takes up less room, and it turns the food itself into a great centerpiece for your dessert table. It is very eye-catching surrounded by pies, fruit, or trays of squares, and helps the cake stand out as the main attraction. I think it would also make a great alternative to a child's birthday cake. Each guest could have their own cupcake, which means less fuss and mess for mom, while still looking very special for the occasion.
I haven't used it for anything else yet, but the box for this item suggested using it for other thing as well, such as little boxes of party favours, small pillar candles, or really anything that you would like to showcase. The only limit is your imagination, so I'm sure I will get lots of use out of it in the future.
