Fabulous Cake Stands

Stands.  Platters.  Plates.  Whatever you call them, a pretty cake deserves a pretty pedestal!  We’ve gone window shopping for cake stands in the past, and I’ve been dying to go again.  You could probably guess this but… I absolutely love cake stands!  When you think about it, cake stands are almost like shoes.  They’re the perfect accessory and a girl can never have too many!  So we’re taking a look at some of my favorite stands and pedestals right now.  From vintage milk glass, to rustic wood and charming DIY’s.  These are some Fabulous Cake Pedestals!

    I just found a fabulous cake stand at Home Goods- the angels were singing! White with a scalloped edge and a big black metal flower on the side- can’t wait to plop a cake on that thing!
