|Cake plate, $5|
I forgot about the existence of cake plates for a long time. I've never owned one so I just got used to taking larger home-baked cakes to the table on oven trays. But there comes a time in a woman's life when serving cakes on oven trays starts to feel a bit juvenile; like continuing to refer to your other half as your boyfriend even though you have children together. I'm still guilty of the latter half the time, as I find the term "partner" rather cagey and unromantic, but at least I have a cake plate now.
