Today I bought a new cake stand, by accident. Exactly what I needed! I just couldn't resist. Therefore, I had a reason to make a cake for my new cake stand. I had been admiring a cake for a while on the fantastic blog My Sweet & Saucy, and fortunately Melody is kind enough to share a how-to video on YouTube with us. Check it out! I'm very pleased with the ruffles on the sides, but the top was more difficult. But hey, it looks pretty good on the stand, right? The cake is lemon, with lemon curd and it is covered with Swiss meringue buttercream.
