Floating: The floating cake stand is a variation of the tiered stand, but with the supporting bars situated on only one side so that when the cakes are placed on the bases, it creates the illusion that they are actually floating. Ornate wedding or debutante cakes can be displayed beautifully in this type of stand, and as a practical note, there are now floating cake stands which can be disassembled for easy storage.
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.
