First, there is Carolines stand, and the design process that led to the final product . She started out liking this one:
|Original Design X Stand|
|Modified base on left side|
This just goes to show how projects evolve. I think the alterations have changed the look so much that it can't really be described as an "X" stand anymore. I've had a few people tell me it looks more "Asian" in design. What do you think?
The next stand is also an original design. It is my Arc Leg Stand. Aileen contacted me on Etsy and was sounding a little frazzled to say the least. She's getting married July 30th and needed an oval to cake stand to fit her cake. You ever tried to find an oval top cake stand? Okay you found one, now is it the right size? Didn't think so. Aileen needed her top to be be 19x15. The one I have listed on Etsy is one I did for one of my sisters cakes that was18x14.5 and is 5" tall. I made this new one for her by stretching the dimensions out a little bit.

Finally, I have a new project/order in the works this week. The mother of the bride contacted me in need of an 8 tier cupcake stand and four matching individual cake stands. The project involves scalloped edges, organza lace ribbon, and fuchsia/cream paint. I will need to do a separate blog about this one because of the challenges it has presented. Stay tuned for more, but here is a picture of the rough prototype.
Now it's off to the shop I go!
