Fab Find: Turntable Cake Stand

I’ve got two turntables and a microphone…  Where It’s At!  I’ve got two turntables and a microphone…

I can’t help it.  I know I’m dating myself.  But this old Beck song has been stuck in my head for days, ever since I received an email from the creator of today’s Fab Find.  Made from recycled vintage turntables and audio speaker parts, these cake pedestals are sleek and modern with beautiful lines.  Not to mention pure genius!!  These one-of-a-kind treasures would take centerstage at any event but are especially perfect for a retro theme.  A 70’s disco, an 80’s Prom Shower, a Rock Star Birthday… I could go on!  Whatever the event, your guests would certainly be talking about these Vintage Turntable Cake Pedestals by JT Baldwin.  They might even be inspired to sing!

It’s genius, right?  Honestly, I’ve seen so many cake stands but nothing like this before!  The turntable platter, rubber mat, record spindle, speaker magnets, woofer and tweeter come together in such a natural way.  It seems as though they were meant to form a cake pedestal!  For the icing on the cake, gutted speaker wire trims the bottom to protect your furniture.
