Thank you so much for all the lovely comments about the cake stand and muffins, bargains and well...everything! If anyone asks a question i always try to email you back but sometimes theres no email addy attached to the comment so i hope its ok im doing it this way...
For those who asked about the multilevel cake stand. I bought it from a gorgeous shop in Durham on Sadler Street, its 4 floors of pure shabby eyecandy - Wild and Funk. Good news is they have a website for those that dont live anywhere near!! Ive looked and im not sure the cakestand is on the website - i know the lady got mine from upstairs so maybe they have more put away and its worthwhile giving them a ring as they were in the sale for £24.50!! :)
It doesnt include the plates as the ones that go with it were £34 for 4 - eek!!! The pink and blue ones i have placed on it were my own, bought from BHS a little while ago for less than £1 each in the sale :) I would be mortified if i broke one of the proper plates intended for the stand so im pleased i went for the stand only and added my own - at least this way its got my own touch too :)
Edible lavender is available from this ebay shop - there is a store called Steenbergs but for some reason its not coming up on google for me!
