Types of Wedding Cake Stands _ One of the most popular styles is the three_tiered wedding cake, it will require a stand capable to hold this style of cake, this normally a square or round stand. As most wedding cakes are three_tier, wedding cake stands are often either a) an unraised cake plate; b) a plateau stand (flat or raised uniformly off the table); or c) a pedestal (raised in the center by some sort of pillar) stand. Glass, acrylic, ceramic, china, metal and even single_use Styrofoam cake stands can be used. To accommodate the wide variations of the traditional wedding cake, there are many styles of wedding cake stands available.
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.
