Upon seeing this gorgeous dessert buffet that Mary of Mary & Gabrielle Events did for an Australia Day party this year, my thought process went something like this:
1. My penmanship clearly doesn’t translate to icing biscuits.
2. Good work on choosing mini lamingtons. Far superior chocolate-to-sponge ratio than regular lammos.
3. Who the hell has that many cake stands? Amy Atlas, put your hand down. Anyone else?
No? Well Mary doesn’t either. Her sneaky trick is to simply arrange your sweet treats on a regular ol’ plate and pop an upside-down bowl underneath to raise it up.
So if you were lusting after one of the beauties in yesterday’s cake stand roundup but can’t justify the expense or cupboard space for something you will use maybe once a year, remember you have the makings of one already.
