  1. Carole, thank you so much for sharing this project! I’m forever hunting for pretty individual cake stands but the store bought ones are usually too uniform or generic for my taste. This would be such a perfect summer project to accomplish! I just have one question about the spray paint you used: is it non-toxic? Isn’t there a risk that the cakes could “absorb” any chemicals from the enamel?
    You did an amazing job, as always!

  2. Hi Ivana, thanks for your lovely comment, I’m really happy to hear that you want to try this project. As for the food safety issue: I’ve had a search online and there don’t seem to be any warnings about the enamel paints. I would think they’re perfectly safe as long as they’re completely dry and you give them a quick wash in warm, soapy water before use. I would probably not store cakes for weeks on end like this, but then the cakes wouldn’t be any good anyway ;-) I hope this helps? xo
