Paris Bake Shop Party- Part II


I used these little 7″ plastic plates (from Walmart), and dollar store glass candlesticks (spray painted blue) to make my mini cake stands for the bake shop party.  I just used hot glue to attach the plate.  They turned out so cute.

When spray painting the candlesticks, I used a primer before the blue…that way the paint sticks much better.  It took about 2 coats of paint:)

These little stands fit a mini cake just right.  Each cake was 6″.  I found my mini cake pans at Orson Gygi.  I will tell more about this amazing store in the following posts.


I found the cutest selection of washi tape at Downtown Tape.  Only 1.99 a roll!  Huge selections of the cutest patterns and colors…I also love the other ideas on how to use the tape.  You must check it out.  I {heart} this tape…gingham, polka-dots, stripes…

I used this pink and turquoise tape to make the mini “name” cake banners.  The colors were perfect.  This was so easy…and I love how cute they looked on the mini cakes.  I just folded a 2 inch piece of tape over some baker’s twine to make the little banner.  I then cut out a triangle at the bottom.  I wrote the letters with just a good old Sharpie marker, with a little fancy writing.  Fine tip markers work the best:)

I used paper striped straws to affix the banners into the cakes.

Here are the little cakes…just waiting to be decorated by the little bakers:)

These were a huge hit!  Stay tuned for more Paris Bakeshop fun this week!

    Freaking adorbz! I just got a set of six 6″ pans to make a layer cake and this is another great use for them — wish I had a reason to have a party like this!
