Haute Stacker Meets Joanna Gaines' Cake Stands

Posted on January 31, 2019 by Melissa Stephens | 31 Comments

I liked the idea of pairing Joanna’s rustic style pedestals and vases with dainty little cakes and the first cake to come to mind was miniature meringue pavlovas.  If you look carefully, you’ll notice that of the three “pavlovas,”  only one of them is topped with whipped cream (which is customary for this Aussie dessert), while the others I left topless.  I used some of my fancy piping tips to create some very feminine piles of meringue.

A Cookie Sandwich Tower

For those of you who've been following my story for awhile know I'm completely in love with decorating and stacking doughnuts.  I feel like Haute Stacker can literally and figuratively elevate doughnuts to the status of wedding cake or gourmet dessert.  Never before have doughnuts been so beautiful and sophisticated, but I'm just as excited about all the other possibilities Haute Stacker offers for all the other sweet favorites.

One of my favorite things about Haute Stacker is the endless options for bases!  In this display I found an eggplant colored flower pot and use the deep purple color as inspiration for the rest of the tower.

I've been dreaming up this commercial for more than a year now.  I wanted to tell the story of Haute Stacker, but I wanted to tell it the way I see Haute Stacker in my MY mind, so that everyone else can see my vision and the full potential of this product. When I think about Haute Stacker I recognize it as a dichotomy of attributes...it is both elegant and bold, beautiful and sturdy, feminine and durable, simple and yet versatile.  These descriptors are often used to describe ballet dancers...their grace and beauty is achievable through strength and focus...seemingly contrasting features. 

I could list all of the amazing things that Haute Stacker can do and be, but a bullet point list of features is not generally captivating.  I wanted to SHOW everyone how Haute Stacker allows you to create cake and doughnut displays never before achievable.  I admit that most people probably aren't staying up late at night trying to figure out how to suspend doughnuts from a chandelier...but for those who do...there's a way now! 

While its very trendy to stack doughnuts on paper towel holders...this look is very casual and often results in a sticky mess.  And, doughnut walls are super fun, but for someone looking for an more sophisticated doughnut or cake display, Haute Stacker is that solution. The Patent Pending dishwasher-safe stacker plates allow you to create simple or elaborate towers reaching up to 3 feet tall without the doughnuts or pastries touching each other.  In addition, the stacker plates can be used as serving plates, so there's no need to hassle with additional plates!

The construction of each Haute Stacker unit is made from solid stainless steel and was built for commercial quality use.  The stacker plates are made of dishwasher-safe, highly durable polycarbonate.  Haute Stacker is designed and built to last for generations...creating beautiful memories for your family and friends year after year.

Included in my Patent Application are more than a dozen accessory pieces that we'll role out periodically, which will allow you to stack even more things!  You'll be able to stack bowls of mousse and potato salad, cakeballs and cakepops, strawberries and cheesballs...Haute Stacker was designed to be your most dramatic and versatile display server in you kitchen!  

The Haute Stacker Starter Kit will be available for Pre-Ordering on October 1st and will retail for $39.99.  I'll be sending out a reminder when pre-ordering begins including an exclusive discount code for those on the Haute Stacker list!  To sign up...just click below!
