How to choose a glass cake stand

In the same category as a cake dome, a cake tier, a cake plate, or a cake display, a glass cake stand can be a great way to display your cake. Before choosing among all those glass cake stands and cake trays, there are a few important qualities you might want to look for to get the most out of your glass cake stand.

Are you sure you want a stand?

Options Before you decide on the kind of glass cake to get, make sure you actually want a glass cake stand. There are so many options to choose from when displaying your cake, including cake displays, a cake plate with a dome, a plastic cake stand, a footed cake plate, a glass or acrylic cake display, plastic displays, displays expressly for two tier cakes, etc. Occasion Think about the type of cake you're putting on display, its height, what event it's for, and who will be looking at it. A glass cake stand might be great for displaying a cake at a bakery, for example, but wouldn't be appropriate for a birthday cake at a kid's party.

Types of glass cake stands to buy

Size There are a million types of glass cake stands to buy. Again, first think of the size of the cake (a two tier cake will need a different stand). Add a couple inches around the perimeter of the cake so it's not shoved up in the stand like a package that's been sitting in the mail for a week. If you need more room for a big cake, buy a tier stand you can assemble on your own. If you want a dome with your glass stand, there are plenty of models out there. Make sure you don't buy one that will crush the frosting on your cake. Stand decorations If you want the stand itself to be a decoration, consider pressed glass or etched glass. Pressed glass stands will look more like Waterford crystal, with designs that look like they've been carved into the surface of the glass. An etched glass stand might be harder to find, but the artwork on it can be worth it. Etched glass is also sometimes called frosted glass, because of the frosty look of the designs on the edge of the stand. Be careful with this if you want the cake to be the primary display item, however, because the etching can obscure the display food. Vintage Another option is vintage glass, which is older and harder to find, but makes a classy display for any cake. Find the right stand for the right size cake and you're sure to impress the clients at your bakery or the guests at your next formal party.
