The wedding cake is the centrepiece of the reception, and presentation is key. Whether you opt for an elaborate tiered cake or a collection of wedding cupcakes, the right kind of cake stand and accessories can make even a simple celebration cake suited to the grandeur of the occasion. Cake stands can be made from many materials, and which one you choose really depends on the size of your cake. For large tiered cakes you may wish to opt for something very strong, and for cupcakes you will likely be able to get away with something quite light – the perfect balance between the two can be reached by using acrylic. Acrylic is stronger than glass but far lighter – and an acrylic cake stand will support large cakes and cupcakes just as well. |
Smaller or two-tiered wedding cakes can be made taller with a cake separator or an angled cake stand. Cake separators pretty much do exactly as they say – they elevate the top tier of the cake and create a space underneath for more decorations and embellishments. The best kinds of wedding cake separators to use are acrylic ones – not only because they are completely food safe, they are also very strong and completely clear. They will comfortably hold the weight of the upper tier of your cake and it will appear to float above the lower cakes!
Angled cake stands are a new and exciting trend for wedding cakes which not only elevate the top tier as a separator would, they also allow the decoration to be displayed in the best possible way. Supporting the weight from underneath the cake, the angled stands allow it to be tipped forward as much as 45 degrees!
Clear acrylic is the perfect material for wedding cake stands. Not only is it very strong and remarkable clear, it is very light and completely food-safe. Once used, the cake stand can simply be cleaned with a little soapy water and a soft cloth. Whilst the convenience of clear acrylic wedding cake stands is apparent, it is the clarity which really makes them perfect for weddings.
It doesn’t matter which colour scheme, patterns or theme you have chosen for your reception – a clear acrylic angled wedding cake stand will suit it. Although they are very modern looking, an acrylic cake stand will never outshine a floral arrangement or the decoration of the cake itself. Therefore they can be used time and time again for all manner of events with the same stunning results.
Create a truly unique and beautiful display for your wedding cake by using an angled acrylic wedding cake stand. It will show off the decoration and make the cake just what it should be – a stunning centrepiece for the reception!
