No matter which dessert route you're taking, you're probably going to need a cake stand or two!
The great thing about this little piece of wedding decor is that if you shop for ones you'd actually want to show off in your own home, you can keep and reuse them after the wedding. Think of all the “awwws” you'll feel when you serve a special date-night dessert on your wedding cake stand!
How to Choose a Cake Stand
It might seem silly to need a “how-to guide” when it comes to purchasing a stand for your wedding cake but there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Mainly, how big will your cake be?
A tall tiered wedding cake is going to need a wider, heavier base. No one (especially your cake baker) wants to see your precious wedding cake topple over.
Daintier, thinner pedestal cake stands are better for smaller desserts like cupcakes, cookies, and pies.
Lazy Susan-style cake stands are great for displaying a variety of desserts, but again, might be a bit unstable for those magnificent, tall-tiered wedding cakes.
If you're filling up a dessert table with tiny desserts, little petit fours and such, don't forget about the tiered cake stands one might find at a proper English teahouse.
We searched through the depths of Etsy & beyond to find 15 perfect choices for cakes, pies, cupcakes, cookies & whatever other wedding desserts you can imagine.
