Four Season Muffin/cupcake Rack

I have been a very busy girl these last few weeks. Hockey, school, and life in general is taking up a lot of my time as of late. I have not forgotten you guys...I have not jumped ship...and I hope that there will be a bit more time this week to get around to all of my favorite blogs...I wanted to share something today, just to say hi, and let you all know I am here...under a mountain of work, decorating, planning and kids.
I have this muffin rack. ( is that what they are called?? lol) It is not just any muffin rack...have you ever heard of a four season muffin rack????
This is the spring and summer look of this muffin rack. Look closely...
This is the Christmas or birthday or gift giving look of this muffin rack....looking closely???
See the gift on top?
This is the fall and Halloween look of this muffin rack....
I love the Christmas star on this look... Now how is this possible you ask??? Do I have just one muffin rack...or 4?
I have just the one...but it comes with 4 different tops that are interchangeable...just by unscrewing the finial. Have you ever seen one like this? I haven't .....but I love it!
I am thinking that I will use it to hold some Christmas ornaments this year...once I get that far! lol

Oh I LUV it LUV it LUV it! This is so neat, I have the Wilton one that holds 23 cupcakes but this one is terrific. It looks like it may be vintage or antique, is it?

You always have the best postings girl!

Nancy said...

That is way cool! I haven't seen one like that before. I've seen muffin racks, but not with the cool toppers.

Glad you came up for air from your busy schedule! This time of year especially is busy for folks. Take care!

No I have never seen one of those. Have you seen what I have posted on my blog today. A Mr. Christmas Music Box that plays metal discs. It is electric and you don't have to wind it. That is a beautiful item you have.

What a wonderful piece. I love it and so versatile. I can also imagine it filled with candles and fruit and just about anything that I could dream up. Love it. Hugs, Marty

I've heard them called Cupcake Stands, not muffin, but it's the same shape, right? Anyway! It's absolutely adorable and very ingenious that they put different toppers on it. Absolutely perfect. I've been eyeing some stands for a year now and thinking about putting tiny pots of succulents in them.

Good to have you back!

Julie said...

WOW, Tootsie...this is really awesome! I want one now and will keep my eyes open for one!!! Thanks for showing it to us!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

How cute, I haven't seen one before. I think ornaments on it is a great idea.

onlymehere said...

I've never seen anything like this! It's so cute and I like your idea of having it hold the ornaments too. :)

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Love it and I am so in to cupcakes....great idea to display ornaments....I have the perfect ones....

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Tootsie,
I haven't seen anything like that and how fun it is :) You could use it for ornaments and cupcakes together...or for many things year round.
Warmly,
Deb :)

Justine said...

I've never heard of a muffin rack, much less a 4-season one! But, it's so cool. I think my favorite finial is the star. Don't just have to use it for Christmas either!

Email me... let me know what's going on in your world!

Justine :o )

Kathy said...

LOVE THIS!!! What a great piece...How much fun you'll have with that!!!! Happy Thanksgiving week! xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings

Evelyn Howard said...

Christmas comes around too quickly. I could do with a muffin right now.

Love the Decor! said...

Oh imagine the possibilities maybe some ribbon cascading down the sides and tiny sparkling ornaments or even some fresh greens holly and mistletoe. This could be a lovely centerpiece for holiday parties

Valerie said...

I really need that for my upcoming wedding!!! Where did you find it? I am looking for a cupcake tree that will hold a lot of cupcakes.

Tootsie said...

it is not an antique...it appears to be brand new! I got it for $2 at a thrift shop when I was supposed to be there to drop off a load of my own cast-aways! lol
Valerie...it holds 13 cupcakes...if I find out anything about it's origin...I will be in touch!

Diann said...

I love it! What a cool rack. I have never seen one before!

Sue said...

What a great rack. I agree-ornaments would look wonderful on that! You have some great ideas, and I'm looking forward to seeing your lovely home all decked out for the season.

Evelyn Howard said...

Wow, $2 - that's a bargain! Fantastic find!

Susie's country cottage said...

Well I have to admit, I have never seen a muffin rack before. Obviously I don't get out as much as I should or maybe we dont have them in the UK but I think it is a really nice idea! I love the way you can adapt it to the time of year too. Brilliant!

trash talk said...

How pretty and fun. You know what would make it even prettier??? Muffins...bring 'em on baby!

I love it!! How cool.

The Japanese Redneck said...

That's just the cutest thing. How neat. Love it. With your creativity you'll come up with all kinds of uses for it.

Tootsie said...

I found some more of these on ebay last night! I believe they were called cupcake towers!

Ellie Mae's Cottage said...

Really cute and a great idea with the interchangeable finials. You always find the coolest things when you go shopping and thrifting.

Bonnie said...

Way to cute. What a neat find.

Judi said...

Hi Tootsie
Welcome back its nice to see you but I too have been off and on with blogging because I've been busy too.
I love your muffin/cupcake rack. Its multi seasonal. I've never seen one like that either.

Keep well and remember to take some time for you too
Judi

Darla said...

GIRL! You ain't just a kiddin' about being busy...I hear you loud and clear..I am so behind on my blog visits...this is adorable and can be used all year....PERFECT~!

Behind My Picket Fence said...

You know, Tootsie girl, if I had a muffin stand like that, I'd say what Marie Antionette said "let them eat cake" (cup-cake). And then I'd make like Martha Stewart & decorate a whole slug of the little critters to fill up the whole thing. And then I'd eat them. But I can't even spell Antionette nor can I come close to a Martha imitation. I guess I'd have to do like you said and fill it with ornaments - which really is a very good idea. Can't wait to see you decorate your very cool cupcake tower.

Behind My Picket Fence said...

I can't believe I didn't tell you that I am actually the owner of the Christmas Cactus plant.............
LOL

Betty said...

I have never seen one, uhmm just where is it you keep this, so when I show up for one of my raids on your greenhouse. Oh never mind I remember now the dog is there.
Hope you are doing good my friend.

Tootsie said...

ha-ha Betty!!! Miss Pooh??? she's a huge chicken! lol...she'd show you how to get in! lol

Jessica said...

This is FABULOUS! I've never seen anything like it!! WOW!

I love ya girl!!

Carol............. said...

What a clever gadget.......love it.

Been checking out your "Flaunt your flowers"...may want to join in the fun.

Teresa said...

That is very unique. You have to love it's versatility.

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

I've seen many styles of cupcake stands but never anything as ingenius as yours! What a treasure & you can do so many things with it. Now I want to see pictures of it with ornaments or candles or something on it! Of course, you can always bake cupcakes for it too... ☺

Barbara said...

Tootise, The cupcake holder is darling, I saw one for sale somewhere, but already had one, so I passed on it.

Happy Thanksgiving
Barbara

Hi Tootsie...
No..I have never seen one like that. Now that is something you are going to have a great time playing with I can tell! It's great! :)
This will be my first Christmas blogging...and I can't wait!

linda may said...

That is great. I have seen some before but smaller versions, not with different tops though. The trouble with that is cupboard space to store it.

Sylvia said...

Hi Tootsie...how cute is that, I can picture it with lots of colorful cupcakes. What a great find!!!!!

La Petite Gallery said...

Hello Tootsie,

So happy you paid me a visit.

I'll go mad this winter can't garden in Maine. BURRRR
soooo cold. I don't mind it if the sun is out.

Your post is lovely as usual.
