Tablescapes: Oh-So-Sweet Cake Stands

Tablescapes: Oh-So-Sweet Cake Stands

You can argue with me on this one, but I swear there’s a direct correlation between a beautifully set table and how good the food on it tastes. If it looks pretty, it just tastes better!! Or even if it doesn’t taste so great, it at least distracts people from noticing... So today I wanted to shed the spotlight on cake stands. Cake stands are the type of serving ware that you have for a lifetime and then pass along to your kids one day. I have several vintage family heirlooms that were passed down to me and I was gifted a beautiful new cake stand on my wedding day:

My grandmother’s cake stand

A beautiful wedding gift!

If a dessert pedestal is currently missing from your collection, check out these three cake stands as sweet as the treats that top them:



But just in case none of those options appeal to you, how’s this for a wondrous invention: This porcelain pedestal turns any dessert plate into a cake stand, holding it in place with a suction cup! Amazing, right?! Or, simply craft your own by hot gluing a crystal dish to a chalice.


And last but not least: Don’t worry about your cake stand gathering dust if you’re not a frequent baker. Let it be known that a cake stand can easily double as an oh-so-chic chic soap dish! Ta-da:


Which one of these cake stands is your favorite?

Love, Molly
