Artichokes Anyone?

What's a gal to do when she is on a DIET and she has this beautiful cake stand? Put fake ARTICHOKES on it and just DREAM about all those yummy cakes that you wish was seating on it! My SWEET sis gave me this beautiful chocolate cake stand for my birthday back in Janurary and I started WW the following week...I just couldn't put it away...so this is what I decided to do with it!

Linda what a great idea and it is lovely! Love the chocolate color of the cake plate and the artichokes look awesome on it. Great that you are doing WW!

Sailing Simply said...

Great idea! I have empty cake plates too! I love this cake plate. The color is fantastic, reminds me of chocolate cake. It's so yummy looking! LOL! Anyway, what I really love about this one is the wavy sides. It's very pretty!

Looks beautiful, anyway!

That looks really pretty and low cal too. Very nice cake plate.

The cake stand is gorgeous and the artichokes look real!! I have been putting fruit on my new cake stand but I heard that it's not good to mix fruit like that...something about the gases causing early spoilage...

How are you doing on WW? I have been toying with the idea and need a good kick in the butt!!

What a great idea, and it looks so lovely...Kathy

Keri said...

Looks great! I love artichokes! Where did you find yours? I looked at Michaels but the ones that they had were not near as cute as yours!

Kim said...

It looks great - why not just call it a pedestal for now?

Fun idea! I love artichokes.

kim said...

I love your artichoke display in place of the cake that you would rather enjoy. Oh, the perils of dieting. Good luck with WW.

Hope you got lots of rest at the beach.

I like the fake artichokes on the chocolate stand, however, real cupcakes would be better! LOL.

Good idea and such a pretty cake stand. I have mine sitting out with salt and pepper, butter dish and sometimes an olive oil bottle sitting by the stove. It has not seen a cake since I bought it at an antique shop last year. Sad.

Suzanne said...

Wow...I love that chocolate cake stand. So pretty!!! And the artichokes...brilliant for this dieting girl too:-) Thanks for the idea.
By the way, your blog is amazing. I'll be back often...promise!!!

Cathy said...

This is sooooo darling...I love the twig bundles too! Did you make them or but them? Toooo cute!

Enjoy!

Yeah, Linda, where did you get those awesome artichokes!?
I love the CHOCOLATE cakestand and the idea!!

Leslie, the Home Maker said...

Oh! I forgot to mention- I lost 40 pound with WW 2 years ago- I have gained 8 pounds back- ugh!
But(t) I am at the gym 3X a week to get rid of it!
Keep going, girl!
It is so worth being healthy!

I love the artichokes on your cake stand. Looks great. Such a pretty cake stand. Love & blessings from NC!

Very cute, love the fake artichokes! I use two of my cake stands as decor as well, certainly does help with the temptation to cover them with baked goodies!

Suzanne said...

Artichokes rank right up there with chocolate cake in my book! Beautiful!

Laura said...

That cake stand is beautiful, and I admire your commitment to WW.
How do you like it so far?

I linked to Bragfest too-

I love that cake stand. I've been looking for a miniature one just like that. I love the wavy edges. Great way to use it for display and I love artichokes!

Always Nesting said...

Opps. I hit post before thanking you for joining us at Woo Hoo! Wednesday. Grab a glass of wine and snack (there's no calories in my refreshments) and enjoy!

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

Now that's a great idea! Beautiful cake stand.

Thanks for sharing at My Backyard Eden!

Jan @ bobbypins boardwalk said...

That's a great solution! Thank you for linking to the Boardwalk Bragfest. Aren't artichokes a great design feature?

Kendall said...

Linda -- Love the way the artichokes look and the little stick bundles are cute too! I also love the new look of your blog! Thanks for linking up.
