Years ago I bought a beautiful milk glass cake plate in perfect condition. I brought it home, got out of the car, and as I was entering the house, the screen door whacked it--breaking off a large chunk. Oh, how I cried.
It took me twenty years to find another just like it, and oddly enough, I believe I paid the same amount of money for it as the first one ($4).
I've got a birthday coming up and I know what my cake is going to be sitting on.
Do you have a cake plate? What style is it?
