I'd splurge a bit if I could find a really lovely cake serving set for the wedding that I could keep using after (My economic stimulus rebate check is starting to smolder). I haven't had any luck in my search. Most sets are so plain and not at all designed to be used for general entertaining.
What I've found so far in antiques have been very ornate and expensive. Or in new pieces, mostly boring. Have you run across any pretty cake servers?
