Cake stand

A month or so ago I wrote a post about a ceramics class that wonderful mum and I had attended with Katie Almond.  We made a two tier cake stand.  You can see the process post here.  We picked them up a few weeks later and assembled them.  Here is mine.


It's sewing themed as it's going to live in my craft room, holding sewing notions.  Nope, no cake is going to grace this stand.  I don't bake.


I tied the little "sew" tag on with a piece of ribbon that matches the colour scheme of aqua, navy and red.



It took me ages to make and put on all those buttons round the edge!


I am really pleased with how it turned out.  I love Katie's style of ceramics and I don't think I did a bad job here.

That's brilliant! And you can save space since it has 2 tiers. I'm going to have to look for one at the flea market next year.
