Crystal Clear

I received an amazing cake serving set from Accent Furniture Direct that even makes my feeble baking attempts look pretty spiffy:

Unfortunately, the rounded dome cake server I received is not on their website anymore but there is a similar design available. The William Bounds - Grainware Serving Necessities Cake Plate with Dome is a more formal looking serving piece that would be perfect for presenting fancy bakery cakes.

I am really intrigued by the entire William Bounds Grainware collection which looks like elegant partyware, both sleek, modern glassware and traditional cut crystal, but it is actually incredibly practical since it is made of easy-care acrylic. I can think of a dozen things that would look better just by virtue of being placed upon these Grainware Pedestals!

I am not a very prolific hostess but I am hoping my mom will buy a bunch of William Bounds Grainware pieces since she entertains a lot indoors and out.

Disclosure: I received the cake dome in the first photo and was asked to write my opinions of it. I was not paid to bake the cake pictured, thank goodness!


  1. swowoooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!

  2. I love those, and had never heard of them before!! Thanks! And the cake looks yummy by the way, too bad you live so far, I'd be knocking on your door now...

  3. I love cake stands and glass domes. I just wish one could have a cake in there at all times but not eat it!

    I guess that's why they make those cake candles.

  4. I had one very similar, until it broke :( I loved it. I have to admit that we used it more as a punch bowl. Betty Crocker, I am not.
