My cake stand collection began with this vintage glass stand from my Aunt Lillie. It is a nice large size and displays cakes beautifully. Thank you to my daughter, Kelsey, for making her Sunflower Cake for this post!
Stacking simple cake stands to showcase smaller pastries is an eyecatching way to set a party table.
This early 1880s ironstone cake stand once displayed confections in the Theodore Kaempchen Konditorei (pastry shop) in Germany. If only we could step back in time and visit Herrn Kaempchen's bakery for a taste!
Another lovely antique ironstone cake stand with scalloped edge displaying clementines. No need to limit yourself to sweets when using a cake stand!
I have always limited myself to buying cake stands that are simple and uncluttered. However, I found this antique pressed glass stand to be lovely despite the busy pattern with a simple base (and the price was right!).
Here an antique children's size cake stand with simple ribbon pattern serves as a base for a scented candle in the powder room.
