Recently my cake stand collection suffered a loss… one of my favourite stands took a tumble (in terrifying slow motion) and smashed into pieces on the floor.
I admit, I was very close to tears and a few strong words were uttered!
Immediately I went online to find a replacement – which led to looking at a LOT of cake stands! Here are the ones saved to my wishlist…
11 Inch Silver Shabby Chic Cake Stand – The Cake Decorating Co.
So anyone who’s been to one of my classes (or seen a lot of my cakes) will know that I am a bit of a magpie and love a bit of sparkle. This cake stand and it’s dangling crystals really caught my eye!
J by Jasper Conran Glass cake stand with lid
These lidded stands are perfect for displaying cupcakes, cookies, muffins, brownies… anything really! I love that they have a cover so if you’re outside it keep any bugs away and the sweet treats inside safe… unfortunately it doesn’t stop children (or husbands!) from getting their hands on them… but it’s worth a shot!
10 Inch Glazed Milk Glass Stand – Marble – The Cake Decorating Co.
Pedestal cake stands are definitely my go to for big wedding cakes. Look at this gorgeous Milk Glass Cake Stand in grey marble, I’m working on resisting the urge to order it!
Purple Wedding Cake Stand by Sarah’s Stands
Purple is my favourite colour, and this stand is definitely purple! I’m in love with so many of Sarah’s cake stands but this one first caught my eye. Great way to add some colour to your display, I can really see a tall tiered drip cake sitting perfectly on top of this stand.
If you’re in the UK and want to order Sarah’s Stands they are available from The Sweet Party Shop.
Square Natural Wood Wedding Cake Stand – Sarah’s Stands
Seriously can’t get enough of Sarah’s Stands, this time a wooden beauty. Gorgeous profile and strong enough to hold a tiered cake. Perfect for rustic weddings and a more natural feel.
Black Pedestal Wedding Cake Stand – Sarah’s Stands
As far as black cake stands go, I think every caker should own one! I use my black milk glass stand a lot, but if that one takes a tumble too I’d be buying one of these! The silhouette is gorgeous and the added height adds elegance to any cake.
10 Inch Glazed Milk Glass Cake Stand – White – The Cake Decorating Co.
My most used stand to date is this Milk Glass Cake stand. Needless to say, this was ordered as soon as possible to replace the gap in my collection. It has a classic silhouette and goes with so many cake styles. I have the matching black version and love them both equally. The height they give to cakes makes them stand out in photos, adds elegance and flair. They are perfect for wedding cakes as they can hold a lot of weight, so no problems holding up a tiered cake!
So there you have it, a few of my favourite cake stands. It was hard to resist the temptation to buy them all, so I’m sharing them with others in the hope they will be bought on my behalf haha! I’m always on the hunt for new cake stands, so let me know in the comments if I’ve missed any stunners!
