Stand for your Cake

It’s been a while since I’ve posted.. but I have a very good reason for my hiatus.. two words.. Family Reunion. This year was my turn to host and I must say we had a wonderful time (phewww).. It was four fun-filled days and after all the planning and seeing these was well worth it.

September has approached and this is a special month for me because it’s my birthday month. I’m not sure what my plans are yet,, but whatever it is.. there’s always a cake for the celebration.  For me, the cake makes it a much sweeter day.. even if there isn’t a gift… but as long as there is a cake – I’m happy (it doesn’t take much to make me happy… Needless to say, that’s my reason for this blogpost. The importance of the Cake Stand.  Important??? hmmmmm, maybe that’s a strong word but after seeing my point, you may not think so.. After looking at these beautiful cakes, putting it on a stand only seems appropriate.       

I paid a visit to the local antique store to find one that would really make the cake have a grand stand. Here are the ones that caught my eye.. I loved the pretty blue shade of this depression era glass stand.  The unique look was quite fascinating.. It is suited for a round cake yet it had a square base.   Very different and  it was made in America

           Moving along I found this one:   The clear crystal with the ruby red trim was absolutely lovely.. Hmmm..  perfect for a Red Velvet Valentine’s Day cake.

I also saw this little cutey pie which was just darling.. Nice and petite.. Just the right size for a small cake.

Just thought I’d  visit to my favorite store Home Goods to see what they have and came across these little darlings.. They’re really nice, but I truly prefer the vintage style


Now that I’ve narrowed down my search, I’ve got 27 more days to figure it out.  So after seeing the lovely cake stands and the beautiful cakes,  Isn’t it important to have it stand higher than  table level..  Like this

  1. I couldn’t agree more. Every Birthday should be celebrated with a yummy favorite cake elevated high to make a statement….”This is MY Day”! They are all really pretty…you’ll find the perfect one. 🙂

  2. Cake stands are to a beautiful cake what jewlery is to a beautiful dress. Definitely need a cake stand for such beautiful cakes. I’m with you on the vintage as opposed to Home Goods offerings. The petite ruby one is darling, but not practical for much more than a small cake. The rose with crystal base – standard. But the blue one – unusual in color and design. I’d be tempted to go with that. As for ‘what goes with blue?’ – the sky is blue, jeans are blue: what goes with those? EVERYTHING!!

    • Thanks Nancy for your feedback. The blue one really caught my eye.. I was so beautiful.. and I’ve not seen one like it before. Now the red one..which would be perfect because the bigger the cake – the more I’ll eat.. chuckles..
