Tiered / Pillared: Working with levels is a great idea when displaying cakes, especially if you want them to stand out among the other types of food or dessert present on your spread. To achieve this type of presentation, you will need either a tiered or pillared cake stand.
The Floating Cake Stand employs the use of a central stabilizer located at the back of the stand giving the impression that the cake layers are "floating" on their bases. Grouped Arrangement Cake Stands are very versatile in that they are designed for you to display more than one cake at a time in a variety of ways. Grouped arrangements can be displayed asymmetrically (no particular display pattern) if you want to be different from the norm. However, the standard three group arrangements are cascading, rounded, or stair_stepped.
