why do i like to torture myself...
with cake stands?
I have made so many of these throughout the years and can say that only a handful haven't warped. This spring I made a small one in this style and it fired quite nicely. We shall see how larger ones hold up. These should accommodate an 8" cake when finished. Of course I had to add all this carving to these so that if they warp it will be all the more painful. I am thinking about bisque firing these upside down. Maybe that will reduce warping... thoughts anyone?
Then there's the glazing, because of course I want them to be the shino and green combination.
