old school wedding cake supplies - keep or toss? - Page 2

post #16 of 20

I say keep them. Those plates and pillars could also be covered in fondant/gum paste/modeling chocolate for a whole new look. I think it is worth hauling a couple boxes around. You might have to hide them from your husband, though. :)

I would keep them, i always seem to need something ive just binned!!!

You could also amend them and use them for something else, a cake pillar doesnt always have to be a cake pillar!! : )

Hi, as soon as I read your post it reminded me of one thing 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding' where more is more.

 

This is a TV programme shown over here in the UK, which follows the lives of young (very young 16ish!!) girls in the Irish/Romany travelling community as they prepare for their forthcoming nuptials.

 

Fountains, pillars, ruffles, tiers, balconies, bridges and fairy lights are all very much alive and highly sort after, in fact the bigger and more ostentatious the better!!

Thanks everyone!  I have found some larger plastic bins and stashed it all in the garage.  I am planning on moving to Texas next year so there's a high probability I'll get some quincanearas and things like that. The woman who gave me the stuff told me the pendulum is swinging back to those over-the-top sort of cakes, I thought she was nuts but it seems she's right!

 

LOL on the gypsy wedding - I've seen that show!  It's crazy!  Then those girls spend the rest of their lives cleaning a trailer every day.

You're only doing 20 cakes per year THIS YEAR. What about next year? When  business is booming and you'll have alll sorts of folk with all sorts of tastes  asking you to do their cakes? Keep them.
