A tiered stand is pretty much like a pedestal cake stand but with more than one base where you can place cakes in, and is usually the best choice when cupcakes are involved. The bases gradually grow smaller as the stand grows taller, creating the illusion of a dessert tree or pyramid. Cupcakes are placed on the bigger bases, and a small actual cake is placed at the top_most base, or sometimes the entire stand is filled with just cupcakes. In place of cupcakes, petit_fours or other small pastries can also be displayed in this type of stand.
However, they can also be used for cake presentations at birthday bashes or to turn an ordinary breakfast into a more festive affair. One way or the other, the cake stand becomes the stage for displaying that tasty dessert. Listed below are a handful of examples of the different types of cake stands out there in the marketplace. Regardless of the event that you are planning, this should give you an idea of all the options to choose from.
