Cake Stands: Choosing the Right One For Your Wedding Cake
A cake stand is an ornamental, lightweight table top object where other pastries and cake are placed and decorated. Cake stands are typically a single tall supporting piece connected to either a pedestal or several plates on a pedestal like serving table. These stands are primarily intended for decorative purposes and serve the purpose of displaying fresh cakes.
Cake stands come in different styles and designs and can be made of wood, metal or glass. They are usually portable because they take less space than serving tables with separate pedestals. Most of the stands have three to four legs and a flat base to support the weight of the cake on top of it. Pedestal stands offer more versatility and the ability to move them from one place to another. They are the most common style and are suitable to use on a variety of occasions.
Some stands may have additional features such as a knife holder or candle holders. You can choose to have one of these additional pieces of equipment depending on your needs and taste. Cake stands come in different sizes and designs ranging from classic to contemporary designs. The price also ranges from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars depending on the type you choose to purchase. There are stands suitable for formal dining occasions while there are stands designed to be used by individuals with no formal dining background.
Cake stands can also be used as serving tools especially if the cake to be served has a long way to go. Cake toppers are available that include the cake on top of it. You can use the stand as a serving plate to help guests find their desert while waiting. Pedestal stands are ideal for weddings, birthdays and other special events. These stands make great party or wedding gifts.
A pedestal stand may have a serving tray attached to it. The tray can be slid underneath the stand while the cake is still stored above. This is useful if you are hosting a large event and there are going to be a lot of people attending. The guests will have a serving tray waiting for them at the bottom of the stand.
Tabletop cake stands are another popular choice among those who like to entertain. These stands usually come with two or three different serving platters that are used when the stand is moved around for different settings. A table top stand is great for small parties. It makes it easy to change out the platters and it makes it much easier to move around during the party. The stands may come with a detachable serving tray that can be slid underneath when not in use.
A countertop stand is another option. These stands are ideal for restaurants and cafes because it is easy to store when it is not in use. It also adds an extra counter space to the establishment. The downside to these stands is that they are more expensive and they are often heavy. They do not take up much room when they are not in use, but they do take up a lot of space when they are being used.
There are many other options when choosing a stand. If you want to make the cake a bit more extravagant then you can choose a tall stand. These stands can sometimes be as high as three feet. The tall stands make the cake look more dramatic and it also allows the cake to be placed in some pretty interesting locations around the room. Cake stands can change the appearance of any cake, whether you are having a small or large wedding or just want to add a little character to your birthday cake.
