6 Reasons We Love Cake Stands
Most everyone is familiar with the classic serving accessory that is the cake stand. While they may be as simple as an unadorned pedestal, they offer far more functionality than the name suggests.</br></br><a title="Cake Stands" href="https://www.atgstores.com/kitchen-dining/serveware/cake-stands/" target="_blank">Cake stands</a> can be used for a range of different purposes, even some outside of the kitchen. Here are six reasons why we love these serving dishes so much:</br></br><strong>1. They can make any dish prettier (even if it isn’t cake).</strong></br></br>As clichéd as the old saying may be, there is truth to the assertion that “you eat with your eyes first” – a cake stand can provide a pleasing way to display anything from holiday baking triumphs to honorable hors d'oeuvres in addition to your cake.</br></br><strong>2. They can vary serving heights to maximize table space.</strong></br></br>What would otherwise be a crowded table can instead be an elaborate multilevel spread. This serveware wonder makes a fancy arrangement look intentional even if it’s out of necessity.</br></br><strong>3. They can stack to create even more room. </strong></br></br>If your table is still crowded, you can just go up! Place one cake stand on top of another to create a flexible multi-tiered serving space with a bit of a wow factor. If you’re going this route, though, be sure to stack smaller stands on top of larger ones, and try not to make more than three tiers.</br></br><strong>4. They can help keep your counters tidy. </strong></br></br>A cake stand is a great pedestal to hold non-food items, too! Use one to organize herbs, condiments, syrups and other kitchen essentials. You can even put a cake stand in the bathroom to display soaps, lotions and perfume bottles.</br></br><strong>5. They make simple and beautiful centerpieces.</strong></br></br>Add a couple candles, figurines or even a floral arrangement and you have a standout centerpiece that sits high enough to be out of the way, but low enough that you can still see over it.</br></br><strong>6. They come in tons of great styles. </strong></br></br>Elegant glass cake stand? Check. Rustic wood designs? You got it. Intricate metalwork and handmade floral details? Absolutely. There are near endless design options to match your style and needs for any occasion.</br></br>With all this going for them, it’s a wonder everyone doesn’t have multiple cake stands on hand to serve, decorate and organize in style.
