We are always looking for wonderful cake stands, plates and platters on which to display our baked goods. There is a gem of a shop in New York City called "Fishs Eddy" which has a fabulous selection of reproduced vintage dishes. The store is literally filled from floor to ceiling with the most colorful assortment of jadite, milk glass and bone china. A visit to Fishs Eddy is always a must when we're in Manhattan. We've also included some pictures of Baker Babes Bakery's favorite cake stands and platters in this post. We feel that desserts should be a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Remember, its all in the presentation!

Saturday in New York City at the Union Square Farmers Market

We had a wonderful time in New York City last weekend. Whenever we are in Manhattan on a Saturday we make sure to visit the Union Square Farmers Market. This is one of the best urban farmers markets in the country. We found a fabulous selection of local vegetables, fruits, meats, honey, eggs, milk, cheese, flowers and baked goods. There are also art, photography, natural yarns and a variety of craft vendors at Union Square. If you are ever in New York City on a Saturday this is a must see, but until then, here are some pictures we took of the delicious sights and colors of Union Square.
