Glass Dessert And Cake Stands ? Elegant Options For Weddings And Dessert Displays

                A dessert table is often considered to be the most important component of any event and part of the reason is the beautiful display of delicious treats. Aesthetics matter in food presentation and an elegant stand is essential. Glass pedestal cake and dessert plates are quickly becoming a more popular method for displaying everything from cupcakes to wedding cakes. By using a variety of stands in different sizes (or even colors) you can create a beautiful display with minimal effort and be rewarded with a wonderful collection of fine tableware that will last for years to come.


            Try thinking outside the box this year for any formal occasion (weddings, corporate gatherings, family reunions) when choosing a dessert display. The new trend has been small treats (such as cupcakes or pastries) instead of formal cakes that are presented on a series of tiered cake stands. This is an elegant way to provide easy access to all the options for your guests and add height to your dessert table. Forget flat trays this year – get creative and add some color and new designs to enhance your delectable treats.


            Cake (or dessert) stands are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. The most traditional cake stand measures 9-10 inches in diameter and is a round plate on a pedestal (usually 3-5 inches tall). A dessert stand can be larger or smaller however and does not necessarily need to be round (even if your dessert is). A bright color is a great way to draw even more attention to your dessert display such as a vibrant Ruby Red or an intense Cobalt Blue. Depending on the event, tableware can be used to enhance a color theme that exists throughout the entire room. It is completely up to you!

            Building a fine tableware collection is a worthwhile pursuit because it will last for years and many pieces can be used in a variety of different ways. A beautiful cake plate can also be used to display a delicious pie or hold breakfast pastries. Many cake plates even have optional domes to protect desserts from dust or accidental touching. Remember that glass can break when it is not properly stored or is transferred from extreme hot to cold (or vice versa). Not all glassware is dishwasher or microwave safe so make sure to check if you are unsure.

            LookInTheAttic & Company offers a great selection of beautiful cake and dessert stands ranging in a wide variety of colors and sizes.
