Cakes de Fleur: Gourmet Cakes

Owner Laurlee Morrison demonstrates how you can perk up these cakes for your next intimate gathering.

Demonstrated on Studio 5

1) The baby shower setup… Three levels of vases (candle holders, flower pots, lots of thing work– rightside up, or upside down… you can make a cake stand out of lots of things. Pour a little water in each vase, color it blue and float a rubber duck in it. Then a cake goes on top of each vase. And maybe add a rubber duck to one of the cakes to tie it in… sand and/or shells could be placed around the bottom.

2) Birthday party cake… Start with three levels again. Take canned goods from your pantry… cover them with a fun wrapping paper. Cakes go on top. Add some streamers below and to the top of the cake. Easy, quick, cheap, and fun with a party theme.

3) Wedding party, book club, or other elegant event. Use books or boxes or whatever to get levels. Throw a table cloth on top and add fresh flowers. A vase of flowers is nice, but pluck a couple to top the cakes. Elegant!

4) Other fun ideas… like a vase with tissue paper crinkled or filled with candy to pull out a color scheme… or maybe add a few fall leaves or whatever to make it into a fun holiday or themed display.
The idea is that these are great cakes. They are fun and easy to use for a party. You can certainly order cakes ahead, but there are so many possibilities if you just run to the store and grab a couple of cakes.

Easy. Not much planning required. Fun.
