      I love this cake stand. It's hard for me to explain it. Simply elegant!?! lol Every time I'm out and about now when I see a cake stand I think of you! But then again, whenever I see any type of glass I think, "I bet Tall Cakes knows exactly what this is"!!! Wish I were that knowledgeable with glass. Must come in handy!
