You’ve worked so hard on your cake. You’re covered in flour and chocolate, somehow, but there’s not a flaw on your cake. It’s been iced to perfection, and even Paul Hollywood on Great British Bake-Off would be impressed. Or so you imagine. Now that you’re done with your baking marathon, you need somewhere amazing to display it. A plate on the kitchen counter simply won’t do. Channel the GBBO contestants and place your cake on an elegant stand, as if it were to be judged. As a fashionista, you know that style is all about the presentation, after all. We rounded up the best cake stands, which look sleek while allowing your cake to shine.
We found three different cake stands. One is retro-inspired, which is perfect for the vintage obsessive. There’s one for the aspiring bakery founder. It’s durable and rotates, so you can ice your cake with ease. The final one is perfect for when you’re short on kitchen space. This cake stand can turn into a salad bowl or an appetizer server.
