This was Guini's "cupcake tower" when she turned 2 in July. Stormie and I just went wild with color and stacked a bunch of dishes, including a martini glass on which to pile the mini-cakes. I know they sell those plastic cupcake holders now, but I hate buying something I will probably never use again. Her party invites had cupcakes on them, so we definitely had a theme going.
It's been a cake-crazed few months!!! See previous!
I'm such an amateur, but it's pretty fun!…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Finish up wedding cake strategy for Audrey's cake and order the pans…find out what Jovan is wanting for her shower?…hmmmm….

Looks cool, but did you have trouble with a 2 year old and a fragile cake? My kids would have destroued the martini glass.
No – it was really pretty sturdy. We started with a big oval platter. A small crystal cake stand went on top of that (the Barbie doll cake later sat on that same cake stand). Then the martini glass and a crystal plate on top of that. We just piled them on and hoped for the best. No disasters!
Yes it has been cake-crazed lately! On Sunday night when our family got together for dinner – Tristan and I were in charge of dessert, so we decided to make a plain old chocolate cake. While I was mixing the batter, Gavin came up to me and asked what it was. I told him – 'It's a cake for tonight', and he asked excitedly – 'Who's birthday is it?!?!?' Our kids are always going to think that it is normal to celebrate three or four birthdays a month;o)
If you want pans, we have scads of them. Hubby used to be a Pastry Chef, so our whole basement is full of all things "Cake Decorating" you could desire. I'm sure he'd give you a deal, knowing that we're "friends from the blogosphere" and all… ;)
