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.
Let's face it: any party___be it a simple children's birthday celebration or an extravagant wedding party___wouldn't be complete without a lovely cake, the most popular dessert of choice for festivities. Over the years, pastry chefs and bakers have creatively improved cakes in order to match them with a certain event theme, or make them unique in their own way. However, the beauty of these cakes don't always just rely on how they are designed, but also on how they are displayed, which is why one should also take into consideration the kind of cake stands that should be used with certain cakes or events.
