Cake stands are an effective means for displaying and serving cake at a special event. They are a great way to elevate your sweet treats, as well as a fantastic way to level up your event decor. Cake stands are designed to make an impact, and are made from all different materials in all different styles. Some cake stand styles are more functional, some are more decorative, some have a greater diameter, and some have multiple tiers. However, no matter what kind of cake you’re displaying, whether it’s for a birthday, a wedding, a tea party, a religious holiday, or a romantic milestone, at Koch & Co, there is a cake stand for every occasion.

- How to use a cake stand?
Cake stands offer a variety of uses. Though they are traditionally used for cake display, they are also used to display any number of food products, drinks, and decorations. Tiered cake stands can be used for displaying many versions of one kind of food, like a cupcake. They can also be used to display a range of foods, like a high tea stand. At high teas, it is traditional to display a selection of foods in tiers as a sort of degustation. In such cases, the cake stand is not only for display but also to separate savoury and sweet elements, as well as to give a structure to the meal, guiding you in what you eat in what order.
- How to use a cake stand as decoration?
When thinking of cake stands as decorations, it can help to heed how inherently decorative and designed for display they are. Make a centrepiece of your cake by utilising a cake stand with dome glass lid. Source a 2-tier cake stand for a more dramatic display of antipasti than you might get on a cheeseboard. Examples of other things you can put on a cake display stand at events include glasses of champagne and party favours.
- How to decorate a cake stand?
Make a table centrepiece of your cake stand using decorations like candles. A range of candles in different sizes, but of the same colour is a sure fire way to create a display that stands out and builds ambiance. An alternative is to use a cake plate or stand as a base for a floral arrangement.
Fresh flowers and foliage are common decorations for a wedding cake stand. A current styling trend for wedding cake florals is Italian ruckus, and clusters of roses and dahlias. If you do use fresh florals, make sure to wrap stems that make contact with any food in parafilm or pot tape.
A handy decoration that works as a complement to a cake stand is a candy buffet jar. These are typically filled with candy but can be filled with coffee capsules, tea, sugar cubes, and anything else that might be needed by guests.
- How to transfer a cake from a turntable to a cake stand?
Transferring a cake from a cake turntable can definitely seem daunting. After spending so much time perfecting frosting, the last thing you want to do is mess it up!
The two key factors that impact the success of a cake transfer are a solid foundation and a solid exterior.
- The tools you will need to pull off this transfer:
- Decorated cake on a cake turntable
- Cake stand
- Angled spatula
- Hot water and tea towel
How to achieve a solid foundation and solid exterior: Build and ice your cake on a cake turntable and refrigerate your cake (on the turntable) for 30 mins before transferring. If you have a buttercream exterior, this will help to minimise smudginess.
Once your cake is chilled, heat up your angled spatula with hot water and thoroughly dry with your tea towel. Quickly move to your cake and run the warm spatula along all of the bottom edges of the cake. This will release the cake from the cake turntable. Keep the spatula flat and parallel to the turntable so that you don’t accidentally remove chunks from the underside of the cake.
With care, wedge the spatula under one side of the cake. Slowly and gently lift one side of the cake with the spatula until you’ve lifted enough to fit your hand in under the cake and replace the spatula. Using your hand, slowly lift the cake up, supporting as much surface area with your hands as you can. Add a second hand if your cake is big enough to fit both.
Gently move your cake to the cake stand, supporting the base of the cake with your hand/s as much as possible. Gently lower the cake, starting from one side. Don’t lay it flat, all at once. Leaving one side slightly lifted will allow you to shift the cake onto the right spot on the cake stand. Before fully releasing the cake with your hand, grab the spatula with one hand, and transfer the lifted part of the cake from your hand to the spatula. Ease the rest of the cake down with the spatula. *TIP: When the cake is sitting flat on the cake stand, but you haven’t removed the spatula yet, cover the space on the cake edge above the spatula with your finger, to keep the buttercream exterior from coming off with the spatula.
Finishing touch: Reheat your spatula with hot water, and thoroughly dry. Smooth the bottom edge of your cake with the warm spatula to tidy up any icing that may have been affected by the transfer. Protect your cake with a cake dome over your cake stand until you’re ready to display and serve.
