Compared to the event and the decorations involved, it may not seem that the cake stand itself is a critical part of the equation. What most people overlook is the fact that the way in which the cake is displayed is the critical factor, especially when the cake itself becomes the focal point of the affair. Cake stands have been used for many occasions, the most elegant ones being employed for displaying the cake at wedding receptions.
These different cake stands can actually be used for any type of event when decorated accordingly, but you need to take three things into consideration: 1) the kind of event you're planning, 2) the kind of cake you're having for the event, and; 3) the 'look' you wish to achieve with your display. Once you figure these out, you will then get a clearer picture of what cake stand you need, and what you can do with it to achieve the look you are aiming for.
