The Standard Pedestal Type_ The pedestal type is probably the most common type of cake stand in use today. Whether it's in the home, at a bakery, or on a coffee shop counter top, the pedestal cake stand is normally what you see. The diameters of these typically range between 6" to 12" and stand somewhere between 6" and 9" tall. Additionally, the pedestal types are topped with a glass cover in some instances as well making them ideal for displaying a single or double_layer cake, doughnuts, or muffins.
Separate wedding cake stands arranged in these types of groupings create a wonderful effect and work well with intricate and individually decorated cakes. Shapes that are non_traditional also work well in this format because they can be displayed individually. Keep in mind if you choose a cake stand of this nature you will need a cake table with ample room to display the cakes.
