Our Favorite Cake Ideas for your Wedding, Party, or Special Occasion

After a number of taste tests and going through so many cake design ideas, you’ve finally crossed choosing the best cake off your Party Planning To-Do List. Congrats! Now comes another fun part, finding the perfect cake stand.

It is easy to find a cake stand, but more than the style, one more important thing to consider is its' functionality. Are you going for small desserts like cupcakes and donuts? Or a single layer cake? How about a multi-tiered large cake? Whatever you’re having, there’s surely a cake stand for it! Today we are bringing a few of our favorite cake ideas together and give you an idea on how you could present these cakes in style on our new cake stands.

Fleur de Lis and Geometric Cake Stands

If you are not a fan or heavy multiple-tiered cakes, then these stands are for you. These cake stand holders are perfect in accentuating small and medium cakes, as well as those sumptuous cupcakes that everyone can’t wait to get their hands on and eat.

These stylish Fleur de lis stands can accommodate smaller cakes which is ideal for birthday parties or a more intimate wedding -- an ongoing wedding trend this year. For a contemporary-themed event, a geometric cake stand will complement your dessert table. The metal base and clear glass top will be perfect for minimalist cakes, pastries, and other confection.

Embossed cake risers

If you want to go big with your cake, these embossed cake stands and risers are ideal for tall tiered cakes and heavier decorated cakes. It is also an elegant support for minimally decorated multi-tiered cakes because of its gorgeous embossed design. Perfect for formal weddings or celebrating big milestones!

Cupcake stands and mirror trays

Cupcake risers like this rectangular three tiers cupcake stand will allow you to display a variety of cupcakes, donuts, and other mini desserts. The rose gold metal design and the acrylic crystal beads will create a romantic and elegant look to your dessert table.

If you are offering smaller treats, mirror trays are also a great choice to beautifully present your sumptuous sugary treats on the table. They are available in round, oval, square, and rectangular shapes in gorgeous colors of gold, rose gold, or silver!

Rustic Wooden Slices

One popular cake stand that more and more people are using is poplar wood slice. Wood slices are a great way to incorporate a natural element into any occasion. It will allow you to showcase your star dessert and give an organic feel especially when accented with florals and greenery. While it is perfect for an outdoor event, it also gives a rustic touch and an outdoor feel if you are having an indoor gathering.
