There is nothing I can not stand more than having stemware and barware that does not get used often enough. It’s great to have martini glasses, champagne glasses, wine glasses and so on, but do we use them enough or are they just taking up space? Let us make a stemware hack.
What if you had a creative Stemware Hack to use the glasses, more than just at your parties and what if this Stemware Hack really made a difference in the presentation? What if you did not have to change their appearance, glue anything on them and just had to pull them out of their hanging area or cabinet and use them. Would you try it then?
Out of sheer frustration and under pressure to produce a fast presentation I grabbed a few pieces of my stemware. I put the stemware to the test, creating a stemware hack! Lavishly live a reuse of stemware creating a useful hack oh and bring on the holidays, parties and celebrations!
What I found were the best-hidden treasures for this stemware hack that you could ever hope to find right in my own kitchen. I did not go out to the store to buy anything I just used this stemware hack to create what I needed and have used it forever more.
I am a baker, a cook, a chef, a food tender and I live to prepare food. When we are out and traveling I often bring foods home for everyone to try but I want to make a great presentation. I am not going to just put it on a cake plate because they are cumbersome to move around. I want to individualize presentation and this Stemware Hack lets me make everyone feel special.
Go to your stemware cabinet and take out a few different pieces of stemware. Put them mouth side of the glass on the counter as though you were stacking them in the cabinet and did not want them to get anything in the cavity of the glass.
Now go grab a few sandwich plates or smaller plates that you have.
Place a Cupcake or whatever dessert or food you have on the plate, and then put the plate on top of the stem. If you don’t like how the plate looks, invert it too.
There you have it a Stemware hack for a presentation of food. It is that simple. When you are done, just put your stemware away and put your plates away, no bulky serving dishes to mess around with or put back in storage and you are done.
The stemware hack is great for putting food out and showing it off because stemware comes in varying sizes you can use that for the presentation of height and it will have the eye traveling around the display to see what all there is. Varying heights is perfect when you want to showcase foods on a buffet, at a party, wedding, shower, etc.

Stemware Hack Tip. If you are a little nervous you can use this tac-it substance rolled thin to hold the dish and the stemware, but if you use small enough plates you will be fine. The trick to makng this work is finding a fine balance between your stemware and lighter, smaller plates that you own.
Lavishly live life out loud, using everything in your kitchen because for every one use you know there are others that need to be hacked into. This is my stemware hack and I hope you find it useful, tell me what you will use it for. ~ DANA
