Four remarkable cake pedestals

stylish cake pedestal standsStylish entertaining calls for dramatic effects. To quickly add a touch of sophistication nothing beats elegant cake pedestals.

For tea party treats, pastries, sweet delights and cupcakes go with a three tier model. Since they stack together, you can only use one or two if that is what you need. Not just for desserts, stands can be used to serve canapés and tapas.

My favorites from the selection at Neiman Marcus (and Horchow) are definitely the floral black and ivory Covered Cake Plate, the Lavender Glass Cake Stands series and the Cupcake Stand series.

I saw the black Scalloped Cake Stands at Ballard Designs. If you make a long dessert table, black scalloped cake stands match well with flocked black and ivory cake plate.

If you are looking for a Moorish motif dinnerware set, the Morena 16-Piece Dinnerware Set is an affordable option. You can see the salad plate beside the black stands.

  1. The first image with the motifed lid is gorgeous. I love baking muffins and yet I have not purchased a cake stand… after this I think I just might!

    Jenn: I own a simple cake stand with no cover. Living with two cats, a cover would be handy and pretty. Something to put on our wish list for Santa.

  3. Wow, I am always looking for beautiful cake stands to drool over. These are amazing. Thanks!

  4. I think the black and white cake dome is a must! I love it!
