I walked into Sur La Table last Saturday and look what I found! Isn’t this the cutest wire pedestal & cage cover you’ve ever seen?! I actually screamed when I saw it.
The pedestal is only about 6″ in diameter. I’m thinking this is a good addition to my prop stash as it was like getting two props for the price of one!
After taking these pictures I decided to make a cake from the cookbook I’m currently working through (The Kinfolk Table – review on my blog in a couple of weeks) and use my new little prop…
Hummingbird Cake. The recipe calls for 3 – 8″ layers, but since the pedestal is only 6″ I decided to use my mini cake pans, which are 6″ but a bit deeper than the larger cake pans. This made for a rather tall cake, which I thought looked pretty awesome!
I also added little viola flowers as a garnish, which are edible though we didn’t eat them.
Slicing such a tall cake was a bit challenging, but I got the job done!
The cake was absolutely delicious! Brian’s birthday is coming up real soon and he’s already told me he wants this cake. Geez, same cake a couple of weeks apart! I probably won’t make the tall version though.
It’s not often a prop inspires a whole photo shoot, but when it does it needs to be shared, don’t you agree?
Thanks a lot for stopping by. Linking up with Kim’s Friday Finds HERE. Have a great day!
