Plateau: A very basic stand, the cake plateau is something one could use at a simple housewarming party, or perhaps a regular family dinner. Usually made of silver or porcelain, it somewhat resembles a pedestal cake stand, but without the long pillar supporting it underneath. Sometimes though, it has three or four short "legs" that give it a small height advantage compared to the other dishes on the table.
Other Cake Stand Options _ Having selected your wedding décor choices, there is no real right or wrong when it comes to choosing wedding cake stands, other than providing adequate support . It can be as simple or as ornate or as high as you wish. If you have an heirloom cake plate or stand you may wish to use that. Alternately, you may be able to use another display, for example, the cake arranged on upside_down terra_cotta pots for a spring or garden themed wedding. If you'd like a non_traditional option of this nature be sure to discuss it with the bakery first to be sure it is acceptable for holding and displaying your cake. One final point is the picture of the wedding cake, no wedding photo album would be complete without it!
