A Cup-cake Stand give-a-way!


It's about time for another give-a-way here on my blog, and in honour of wedding season, I thought this cup-cake stand might a good place to start!

This little cup-cake stand was created especially for a photo-shoot for a wedding magazine that will be out on the stands on June 21st.  The concept behind the shoot was soft pinks and creams with romantic and pretty elements! I had a lot of fun thinking about inspiration, but not heaps of time to make the work.  Nevertheless, I created a series of cake plates and cupcake stands inspired by Posie Bouquets and a Folk Art Love Bird design that I silkscreened onto my wheel-thrown form with a ceramic underglaze.  They measure 6" across and 3.5 inches high, with just enough room to put 3 lovely cupcakes on them.  Perfect for an intimate tea party or pull it out as a stand for your brie cheese in the evening, this little cupcake stand is simple and lovely for any table. 

To enter the give-a-way just leave a comment and say 'hello'! I just forgot to mention that I will announce the randomly chosen winner on friday, June 11!
