5 beautiful cake stands that take the cake.

Jansen+Co mint green cake standIf you have your cake and eat it too, what are you left with? A whole lot of pretty is what, so long as you own a fab cake stand.


You bakers may already have cake stands, but we promise that thse picks are worthy of a spot (or two!) in your collection. You don’t even need to be a serious baker to treat yourself to one of these. 


They make pretty displays out of anything from fruit to kiddo’s art supplies, can be used as a pedestal for centerpieces, help set the mood with pillar candles, and can show off a collection like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Even if we’re talking a collection of pipe cleaner sculptures.


So, go ahead. Take a stand. Ha. -Stacie



I’m over the moon for these modern-retro cake stands by Jansen+Co. They come in lots of colors and two sizes (small, $34; medium, $48). Watch out–you may want them all if you’re like me. (h/t Design Sponge)

Ruffled tin cake stands

These fun ruffled tin cake stands have a rustic charm that’s perfect for an outdoor gathering or summery fruit-themed birthday party (3 for $135).


Wooden cut out cake stand

If you’re more of a modernist, I adore this wooden cake stand ($34) of cut out maple. It’s not only a great price, it can be disassembled into three flat pieces for easy storage. Perfect for you city dwellers with limited kitchen space, but big cake-eating ambitions.
