Thanks to the genius of event planners and vendors nowadays, we are presented with a lot of new and different ways to display our cakes. There are lots of lovely cake stands which can easily be bought from department stores, and there are also those which can easily be made at home. Let's look at some of the more popular types of cake stands and determine when and how we can utilize them properly for an event.
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.
