The wedding cake is the centerpiece of your wedding reception. As such, many wedding reception designers place the wedding cake on a cake stand. Wedding cake stands, also referred to as cake plateaus, are wedding cake accessories used to raise or elevate the cake. They have a large platter that is raised by a stand. Cake stands are used for cake displays in weddings as they add value to the cake presentation. Other names for cake stands include cake raise and cake pedestals.
There are a number of wedding cake stands. Each of them varies depending on the design as well as the materials used. Common materials used for cake stands include wrought iron, acrylic, stainless steel and glass.
Wrought iron wedding cake stands are very durable. They also come in a variety of designs that range from simple rectangular risers to quirky tier designs.
Acrylic cake stands also come in a number of styles but most people prefer clear designs using materials such as clear glass. Acrylic cake stands also cost lower than glass stands.
Glass cake stands and stainless steel cake plateaus are perhaps the most popular. This type of cake stand adds elegance to the cake. A glass cake stand makes the cake truly stand out. It gives the cake a delicate and simple sophistication. On the other hand, the shine resulting from the reflection made by the stainless steel stand will surely catch the attention of your guests. The shiny chrome will compliment the daintiness of your wedding cake. Other popular cake stand materials include porcelain, crystal, and silver.
A cake plateau is a great addition to your wedding reception designs. Such stands come in various sizes. Small individual cake stands measure about 5×5 inches while a large individual cake stand measures about 9×9 inches.
You can decorate your wedding cake stands by placing small pieces of candy around your cake pedestals.
