I inherited a collection of older Wilton decorations: cake toppers, birds, stairs, etc and don't think I will ever use them. How do I go about finding someone interested in them who would use them? I did have to pay a little for them (they were in a lot with other items like cake pans I do use) so it would be nice to get some money back. Mainly I would like to find someone who would enjoy them. Some items have yellowed with age too.

Do others 'recreate' original wedding cakes? I don't really want to throw them out or just drop them off at a goodwill.

I appreciate any tips!

Thank you.

How about ebay, craigslist or kijiji? You can list on them and maybe someone will respond.

I would try Craigslist. Just because you don't make cakes that style (I don't either icon_biggrin.gif), doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of people who still use them, and some of the items can be pretty hard to find.

I tried craigslist without success. It's new in my area; maybe a year or two old. I am not familiar with Kijijiji? I also tried the several yahoo 'cheapcycle' groups.

It's been several months since I looked at ebay; what area would I post them in? I've not found anything similar posted.

Would anyone know where to find descriptions of older items online I could maybe link to? That could help.

Thanks for the suggestions!
