The Tiered Cake Stand Your Baked Goods Deserver to be Presented On
How to Pick the Perfect Tiered Cake Stand
First and foremost, determine how you will (typically) use your new cake stand. Will you strictly use it for cakes? Or other sweet treats, such as pies or cupcakes? Will you also use it to layer savory snacks or create a raised charcuterie platter?
Determining the use of the cake stand will also help you to determine the correct size for your confection. There are two trains of thought here. The first idea is to find a size that the edge of the cake will line up with the edge of the cake stand. Keeping it clean and tidy. If you are going to add additional external embellishments, then you will want to select a cake stand that is a little larger, so the cake can be placed in the center, and there will be enough space to add the pretty details like seasonal flowers, frosting and other decoration.
Once you’ve determined how you will use your cake stand and the size, next, look at the durability of the cake stand. If you know you’ll be showcasing showstopper cakes with multiple layers, consider stands that can manage the weight. Metal, wood or even glass are great materials to utilize for hearty cakes. For lightweight cakes with single or double layers, consider melamine or tin.
Now that you’ve thought about how you would like to utilize your cake stand and the size you’ll need, determined the weight and the scale of the cake or dessert, now think about the style of the cake stand you would like. Do you prefer something with cleaner lines and more modern? Or do you prefer something more rustic and casual? Is your style classic and refined or do you tend to lean a little more playful and whimsical? Or are you all of the above? I mean, honestly, can you have too many cake stands?
And finally, if you love to entertain and host friends and family, consider adding a two or three-tiered cake stand to your repertoire. These types of cake stands make for really creative use of vertical space that are fun, fabulous and incredibly functional. And totally not limited to cakes or desserts, but can be expanded to savory starters, make-your-own ideas and even something as simple as stacks of plates, forks, napkins or condiments.
