My Cake Icing Stand

With the amount of icing I do, I thought it would be nice to have a turntable style icing stand and why buy when (not even sure I would find one in PE) I can get my Pete to make me one.

So when he was home from a business trip, I pounced on him with the idea and within a couple of hours, I had my one of a kind fabulous cake icing stand.   I LOVE IT!!!

Pete used scraps of wood which he had in the garage, added 4 marbles, a touch of glue, a nut and bolt, some paint, et voilà, one gorgeous and oh so fun to use cake icing stand! What a difference it makes to be able to give a slight turn of the stand on not the cake or cupcake while icing. 😀

The table top turns so smoothly over the marbles which have been glued into little recesses Pete made in the base while the nut and bolt slip through a hole made in the centre of the top and the base.

I need to put in an order for a pasta drying stand, which must be able to be dismantled for easy storage.  I have been tempted to use a clothes horse but to date use a piece of dowel which I stick between 2 dining room chairs, which reminds me, it has been far too long since I made pasta.
