3  Re: Wedding Cake in Dessert by BluegrassBeagles on: May 19, 2004 07:03:54 AM
Hey, I'm not alone! I, too, made my own wedding cakes. I really, REALLY wanted angel food cake with whipped cream on antique cake stands. Oddly enough, I could only find one baker willing to make angel food cake, and she INSISTED I use buttercream frosting, or I'd regret it. Um, part of what I like about angel food cake is that it's light and subtley sweet. Buttercream frosting is HEAVY. So I endeavored to make 16-1/2 angel food cakes the week of my wedding, storing them in the church freezer. I ended up not using whipped cream because I didn't have anyone who could frost them last minute for me and whipped cream won't hold at room temperature. I did make three sauces to put on the cakes, at the guests discretion: creme anglaise, chocolate custard sauce, and raspberry sauce. The cakes themselves were just decorated with pansies (which are edible, so food safe).

My friend who got married a year later ordered a plain, tiered cake. She did have the bakery do a basket weave with the frosting, but I don't think that was necessary. Then she ordered gerbera daisies and I cut the stems off and placed them and raffia around the cake. I also placed ribbon around each tier. That was easy, but you have to do it with a steady hand. It was very pretty and very simple. The groom's cake is at the opposite end and we made that from a mix that day, frosted it with purchased frosting, and embellished with magnolia leaves and strawberries.

4  Re:Folding Table for Craft Markets in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by BluegrassBeagles on: April 30, 2004 07:57:46 AM
I recently started doing craft shows and had $0 to spend on tables. We already owned a folding card table and sawhorses, so I took a little trip to my local home improvement store and found some scrap lumber: 1/2 inch thick 2x8. I got the lumber for free! (Actually, I only got it for free because they were so busy they didn't want to fool with marking it, so they just said to take it.) Check out the back of the store near the cutting area. You might luck into a slab that will fit in your car, like I did.

I bought a twin flat sheet to drape over it, and I overlay some tulle, as well. It is nice because I can put my jewelry on this table and my dog biscuits on the card table. I can adjust my sawhorses to 37", which puts the jewelry up closer to eye level and means folks don't have to hunch down to inspect it. It also gives me LOTS of room to hide boxes, bags, food, etc under the table.

The picture is a little dark, but maybe you can get the gist of it:

The other displays I built with about $30 worth of lumber and five hours of labor.
