Other Cake Stand Options _ Having selected your wedding décor choices, there is no real right or wrong when it comes to choosing wedding cake stands, other than providing adequate support . It can be as simple or as ornate or as high as you wish. If you have an heirloom cake plate or stand you may wish to use that. Alternately, you may be able to use another display, for example, the cake arranged on upside_down terra_cotta pots for a spring or garden themed wedding. If you'd like a non_traditional option of this nature be sure to discuss it with the bakery first to be sure it is acceptable for holding and displaying your cake. One final point is the picture of the wedding cake, no wedding photo album would be complete without it!
Pedestal:Probably the most popular of all types, the pedestal cake stand is the type one would normally see in a café or bakery, or even a normal household. It has a pillar (usually around three to six inches long) which supports the main base (with a diameter that ranges from six to twelve inches) where the actual cake is placed. A domed variation of this type includes a clear glass dome that serves as a cover for the cake on display, which is a useful option for an outdoor celebration. This is usually the safest option when displaying wedding or birthday cakes, and is available in crystal, porcelain, and even wood.
