What is it about cake stands that I find so irresistible? Innately fairly, filled with whimsy, they’re perhaps not the most practical item in your own kitchen, but you do not buy a cake stand for practicality. Cake stands are intended to be frivolous and enjoyable, and they certainly know how to gussy up a sandwich.

Rustic Wood Cake Stand by Roxy Heart Vintage – $45
Time to go back to nature. I am in love with this rustic”tree slit” cake stand. The manufacturer will also hand-carve and burn off any personal message, initials or dates on the stand.
Beehive Cake Stand – $39
I love this beehive lid. It looks like something straight out of Winnie the Pooh.
Woodland Keepers Cake Stand by Patina Vie – $58
What a shabby chic find. It’s a vintage, distressed wood appearance with a touch of gold, which soda of robin’s egg whites is simply lovely.
Modern Serveware – $70
Tea party, anyone? Using upside-down tea cups as the pedestals is an example of great detailing.

Pretty in pink, this petal-colored, five-tiered, flower-inspired stand could be just the thing to flaunt several cupcakes or sugar cookies.
Eyelet Cake Plates with Ribbons by Jeanette Zeis Ceramics – $330
This tiered stand reminds me of ribbon and lace. Pretty and sweet, it’s the typical prerequisites for a good cake stand.
Janice Minor Cake Stand – $480
This cake stand belongs in a fairy story. I really like the way the twig stand is natural and delicate looking, drawing the eye directly to the yummy cake prize below the glass dome.

Vintage white scalloped edges make this miniature cake stand one of my favorites.

With its romantic, classic milk glass with hobnail detail and ruffle edging, this is like everything I really like all in one!
Julia Knight Peony Cake Stand – $99
These cake stands have beautifully scalloped edging and are hand-painted using a mix of enamel infused with crushed mother of pearl. I really like the combination of colors too; they’re fresh, modern and feminine, but not overly frilly.
Noir Pedestal Stand – $59
Noir. Sleek. Chic.
Shannon Cake Plate by Delightfully Lovely – $34
These yellow baubles are overly enjoyable.
Kristin Cupcake Tree by Delightfully Lovely – $50
I’ve been on a huge lime green kick lately. This vibrant color would look great against some vanilla buttercream–frosted goodies. I also dig out the playful garland design on this.
Galvanized Tin Pedestal – $32.99
This galvanized tin base brings a kind of rustic, farmhouse texture to the table. I know this ideabook is all about cake stands, but I’d just as easily slap a cherry pie with this baby.

A whimsical tree dessert stand is just what I want. Obviously.
Jeweled Vintage French White Cake Stands – $150
Um yes, I’d enjoy my fancy cake stands dripping with stones, please. Merci beaucoup.

Cable Cupcake Stand – $34.95
This is a versatile serving piece for sweets, hors d’oeuvres or even fruit. The elegant wirework reminds me of doilies. I enjoy this.
