Martha Stewart Cake Stand Breakfast (With
Cronuts!)
Posted by Darcy Miller
Last week, I hosted a small breakfast that showcased
fun and creative ways to entertain with cake stands. We displayed four
different scenarios: ‘Wedding Shower’, ‘Baby Shower’, ‘Back to School’, and
‘Summer Entertaining.’ Each scenario featured our
Martha Stewart
for Macy’s cake stand collection
in ways that are not necessarily as
conventional as they are functional and charming. Have you ever decorated a
cake stand with party favors before? It’s such a fun way to thank guests for
coming to a celebration and is also great to leave by the door for friends to
grab from as they go. If any of you are thinking about
wedding
registries
, deciding how to decorate an upcoming celebration, or
even just want to find more ways to use your cake stands at home, take a look
at some of the photos of the breakfast and please
let me know if you have any other cake
stand ideas!
I’ve found that cake stands are often one of those
misunderstood, overlooked items in the kitchen, only taken from the cupboard
for special celebrations or for the occasional dessert; they really are more
versatile. You can use them over and over for all different occasions, filling
them with various items—edible or decorative. What better way to treat your
kids or guests than surprising them with their favorite snacks in a cake stand?
(Our
Martha Stewart
for Macy’s black ceramic cake stand
looked so sweet with stacked
chocolate chip cookies inside!)
I hope that our cake stand ideas inspire you in your entertaining and
day-to-day decorating.

P.S. Yes, those are the famous CRONUTS in
the photo. And, yes, they are definitely worth all the NYC hype! Don’t
forget to send me your cake stand ideas!
