I've been reading your blog for a good few months now, and I usually don't comment only b/c I'm too busy trying to wipe the drool off my face. But I really had to say something today...this looks AMAZING. Plus I love the plate, and a sugar cookie-tasting white cake sounds so yummy. urghh I need to go find some dessert now!


Love that garage sale find...and kudos for the rave mother-in-law review! {brownie points!}. A cake that tastes like your cookies? Wow wow wow!!!


simple sweet and beautiful. I agree...that thrift find is amazing!


my husband loves sugar cookies! Particularly your sugar cookies! I know he will love this cake!!


I don't own a single cake stand....but if I could find one like that one I'm sure it would be the start of a glorious obsession.. I mean collection :o)

My name is Sheila & I too, lay in bed & think about cake. Thank you for allowing me to join your group.


Such a sweet and happy daisy cake Amanda. If I lived closer I would invite myself for tea & cake :) xo


What a great cake! I love that you were inspired by the cake stand. Your cake compliments it perfectly. I look foward to your tutorial post.



I love that you always show the inside of your cakes. Not everyone does that. But seeing the inside is just as important as seeing the outside decorations.


The cake looks great and I bet it tastes amazing! Such a pretty cake stand too, your MIL is has great taste.

I find myself lying awake thinking about cooking and baking all the time! Although I'm usually in some sort of nervous sweat about what I'm going to make and if I'll be able to pull it off in a normal amount of time.

Beautiful cake plate, it screams summer!


It couldn't be more perfect!!!!!!!!!! And I love the cake stand!

Jenn {Cookies Cupcakes Cardio}

Beautiful cake to match a beautiful cake stand! I also love sugar cookies, so I can't wait to try this...it's bound to be delicious in cake form too. Looking forward to your post about creating the flower...I have my suspicions about which petal tip you used, but I'd like to know for sure!


I also thing about cakes at night while I'm in bed :) And some times I think about yours and how, me being so little talented in the kitchen, could make something similarly beautiful! I have some many of the recipes bookmarked I don't know which one to start with :P
Today's cake is trully gorgeous!!!!


That sounds like my kind of cake!


I have this same cake stand (got it for our wedding almost 10 years ago)!!! Now I just need the cake :)


It's so good to know that I'm not the only one "crackers" for lovely dishes and serveware. If only I had kitchen storage the size of an airplane hanger. I'll share one of my secrets with all the Baking Beauties here. I shop the yard/tag/garage sales, consignment & charity type stores for serving pieces. I store them until holidays, birthday or shower parties. I'll bake a goodie & put it on a piece which becomes part of the gift, wrapped in colorful plastic and tied with a bow and I include the recipe. It's a one of a kind gift.

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

That's like one gigantic sugar cookie! How sweet of your mother in law to have gotten that cake stand for you.


What a sweet MIL you have! I love cake stands too! Just wish I could bake like you do girl! Gorgeous!

Kristin Smith

You never cease to amaze me!! Sounds yummy! But as much as I love your baking....I think we need a new baby fix again...post some pics of those beautiful kiddos of yours soon ok?! :)
Hugs, Kristin

megan @ whatmegansmaking

Beautiful!! And I can't wait to see how to make it. This would be perfect for my SIL's bridal shower :)

megan @ whatmegansmaking

p.s. I made vanilla ice cream the other night that tasted just like sugar cookies! But then I realized it was because I used the same very distinct vanilla that I always use in sugar cookies. *love* :)


the sweetest cake!
