The Cake Chain Etsy Shop Review

Everyone knows my love for handmade, custom items at this point.  Not only do handmade items make fantastic presents that come from the heart, but they are conversation starters too.  Designing a custom item for someone that contains a specific and special message will surely bring a smile to their face.  They will treasure that gift always.  The Cake Chain knows all about making people smile.

The Cake Chain is an Etsy shop ran by owners Deb and Martha.  They create hand painted custom cake plates to order with your own personal message on it.  The center of the plate always features a hand painted cake in the colors of your choice.  The rest of the plate is up to your choosing.  If you're getting married soon, it would be a nice keepsake to have your names and wedding date on the bottom.  Giving a plate featuring a birth announcement to a new mom would make a great gift.  How about giving a plate to Grandma with her grandchildren's name written on it? As you can see, there are so many different ways to customize the perfect place for the recipient. What I really like about The Cake Chain is that they donate 20% of all sales to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  It's really nice that they like to give back.

I chose to have a plate made that featured my name, my fianc√©'s name, and Carolyn's.  As we don't have children yet, Carolyn is our furry child.  I think it's a very special plate.  We don't have anything else that has all our names on it.

I love all of the detail that went into this plate.  From the heart dotting the I in my name, to the dotted pattern on the perimeter of the plate, to even the dots on the cake.  Everything is done to order and I can tell a lot of time and love went into making this piece.
The cake plate is simply beautiful! The size of it is large and easily holds a small cake.  The black and white polka dotted pattern on the rim is adorable.  I'm actually a big fan of polka dots.  I love the large cake design in the middle.  The red bottom layer adds a fun pop of color to the plate.  Underneath the cake our names are written.  I love the fun and whimsical font chosen. 
I haven't actually used the plate for cake yet, but I did make a large batch of cookies today and I used the plate to hold them.
The plate had no issue holding a lot of delicious peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies.  Yes, you may have one too! There was still a lot of room if I wanted to add more.  You could bring someone over cookies on this plate, or even a small cake too.  The plate is very durable and has weight to it, so it is solidly constructed.  I would recommend hand washing the plate to protect it.
If you're looking to give someone a special gift for their birthday or any other memorable occasion, The Cake Chain is ready to work with you to create a custom plate of your dreams.
