Cake Stands, Platters, and Domes Collection

At the turn of the 20th century, cake stands became fashionable table accessories. England’s Queen Victoria introduced afternoon tea and the centerpiece of the tradition was a cake stand presenting the most beautiful element of the hour at a higher level than the other sweet and savory offerings. Today, the cake stand makes a comeback and provides a practical and beautiful way to display cookies and cakes.

What is a Cake Stand?

A cake stand is any decorative plate mounted on a stem or foot to display baked goods and may be found in a variety of materials. Quality producers offer pressed glass, modern wood, hand blown glass, and pewter options--all intended to bring a bit of nostalgia back to home baking.

Mosser Glass

Mosser Glass is an American family-owned business known for quality pressed glass cake stands in a variety of colors: Robin Egg Blue, Jadeite, Pink Crown, Grey Swirl, Georgia Blue, Milk and Purple. The sizes range from 6 inches in diameter to 12” in diameter and may be stacked to showcase a variety of desserts that might include petit fours, eclairs, cakes, cookies, biscuits, and macarons.

American Heirloom

American Heirloom, based in Brooklyn, New York, sources responsibly harvested hardwood and manufactures durable and aesthetically pleasing white tops for their cake stands. Intended to stand tall and sturdy even when stacked one on top of the other for dramatic wedding cakes or ordinary everyday displays of baked goods, their wood-based stands are made from either maple or walnut hardwood. The cupcake sized cake stand makes for a darling photo opportunity for a first birthday cake and the huge 14” diameter wedding cake stand has a timeless walnut turned base that complements any cake design and serves as an heirloom memory of the wedding day that may be passed from one family member to another through the decades.

In 1995, David Reiss founded MATCH Pewter and began importing cake and tart stands made in family-owned pewter shops dotting the northern Italian countryside.
