More delicious vintage cake accessories

Our trip to the racecourse car boot on Sunday was surprisingly successful.  Mostly I'm impressed that I managed to not lose Darling boy in the crowds and not bring back a boot full of rubbish. A solo parent trip to an exciting place full of brightly coloured plastic toys lying invitingly on blankets on the ground is some kind of 'Its a knockout' style parenting challenge.  Fantastic behaviour meant one toy each for Darling boy and Little brother were purchased, and after a luxurious bath in fairy liquid they are the new favs in our household.

But for me, I managed to seek out these very pretty cake tongs.  I love them and can't wait to use them.  

I would have included photos of the boys new toys, but its a simple fact that they just aren't as lovely...


  1. This is BEAUTIFUL!!! I want a pair! hehe.... I bet it was a bargain too! Very jealous!! xx

  2. that is beautiful! New things just don't have the character of vintage. sigh. Did you ever find some vintage cake forks?

  4. Very envious of your cake tongs - lovely.
