Dessert Stands

Everyone loves dessert, but naysayers will tell you that you can’t have your cake and eat it too. It’s possible they just don’t have the right dessert stand to appreciate their sweets before gobbling them up. Being tempted by the visual allure of delicious cookies, pastries and candies is half the fun, after all! Even the plainest desserts can look irresistible displayed on colorful tiered stands and plates. But don’t run out and buy the first one you see; check out the following tips for choosing the right cake stands and cupcake holders so that you can have your cake and eat it too.

Should I get a single- or multi-tiered cake stand?


That depends on two factors: the type and amount of dessert you want to serve. If you’re keen on traditional cakes, you probably want a square or round single-level cake plate. With just one tier and a sturdy base, you can easily cut and serve straight from the plate. Plan to have leftovers? Or maybe you want to put your masterpiece on display before digging in? Go for a glass cake stand with a dome. This will both protect your dessert from unwanted taste testers and help preserve what's left (if anything). A three-tier cake stand, which typically has a supporting pole running through the center of its tiers, is less ideal for serving full-size cakes but perfect for sharing a variety of smaller treats, like pastries and cookies.

What are my cupcake stand options?


Cupcake stands come in two main styles. A classic cupcake tower consists of three or more flat tiers, each one slightly smaller than the next for easy cupcake accessibility. The wider and taller the tower, the more frosted goodness you can fit on it. These towers come in a variety of colors and materials, making them great for adding some personal pizzazz to your dessert spread. The other option is a cupcake holder — a tree-shaped design, made of individual slightly angled rings, each wide enough to hold a single cupcake. These holders are generally made of metal or strong plastic and put all the focus on your culinary creations.
