Pretty Cake Stands & How I Use Them

Over the years I have managed to collect quite a few cake stands! I used to do a lot of baking and often used the stands for the cakes I baked.  Although I don’t bake much any more unfortunately, I do still make use of the cake stands I have accumulated. In fact I have had two of them in my bedroom for years, both of which I use daily.

My Cath Kidston Cake Stands

These two ceramic cake stands are from Cath Kidston
which I bought over 5 years ago when I was still a student. They were a
little bit pricey for my tiny budget, but they were too pretty to
resist and I was determined to get lots of use out of them.

cake stands sit next to each other on a little table in my bedroom. 
The single tiered one is perfect for keeping my hair curlers and
straighteners on as I don’t have to worry about them burning my
furniture surfaces.  The colourful floral print on the ceramic is still
good as new and the daily heat from the appliances hasn’t caused any
damage at all!

I use the tiered one as a little desk tidy to be honest. It’s nice and easy to use just as a bit of storage and it stops me from losing small things like hair grips and safety pins! I keep all kinds of bits on there.. lipsticks, pens, sweets, receipts, sunglasses, jewellery.. all sorts! And because it’s next to my door it’s easy access so sometimes I end up just chucking anything on there on my way past!  I think it makes quite a neat and pretty storage solution, and you can get quite a lot on this three tiered one!

    I love this idea. I have loads of cake stands that I use for baking but it would be nice to use them for something else too 🙂

    A great idea for storing all you bits and pieces. This would look lovely on a vintage inspired dressing table. I love anything Cath Kidston!
