The 22 most beautiful specimens for the wedding

A wedding cake stand is the basis for every wedding cake. NNot only the shape of the individual steps, but also the entire appearance is influenced by the wedding cake stand.

There are several things to consider for the right cake stand for a wedding: The shape, the material and the question “Rent or buy?”. We explain to you what to look out for.

The article is divided into the following areas:

  1. Wedding cake stand shapes
  2. Wedding cake stand materials
  3. Rent or buy wedding cake stands
  4. Buy cake stand


1. Wedding Cake Stand – Shapes

First we address the question of the shape of the wedding cake stand, because the entire “design” of a wedding cake is based on this.

The étagère

The most important difference is whether the wedding cake or the individual steps (e.g. 3-tier) are pierced by the wedding cake stand itself.

This is the case, for example, with the typical cake stand wedding cake, in which the individual cake levels are pierced by the connections of the cake stand.

The advantage of a free-standing cake stand wedding cake is that all floors can be cut independently of each other and different tastes can be easily separated.

Step shape

An alternative wedding cake stand shape: The steps moving upwards in a circle.

Because the steps of the cake stand are not directly on top of each other, each individual step can be attached in such a way that the actual cake is not pierced. So you can easily offer different flavors.

As an alternative to these classic shapes, there are of course also special shapes that don’t require a wedding cake stand. If the cake for your wedding only consists of two to three steps, then you can simply stack them on top of each other. This saves you the cake stand. But this comes at the expense of handiness, as it becomes more difficult to cut the cake and you have to eat from top to bottom.

Or very unusual wedding cakes: Shapes such as a castle, house or soccer ball look absolutely great as a wedding cake and give the wedding a special individuality, but are difficult to make and therefore usually more expensive.

2. Wedding Cake Stand Materials

The requirements for the material of the wedding cake stand are quite simple. The wedding cake stand must be strong enough to hold the weight of the wedding cake and it must be food safe.

The following materials are mainly used for cake stands. It all depends on your taste and budget.

Cake stand for wedding made of glass / porcelain

A cake stand made of glass or porcelain looks the finest for the wedding! Every cake makes a great impression on it! In addition, glass and porcelain are easy to clean and you can enjoy them for a long time.

However, these cake racks are quite expensive, heavy and of course easily broken. That is why you have to be very careful when transporting it!

Cake stands made of metal, such as stainless steel & aluminum

The wedding cake stand made of stainless steel or aluminum is rather subtle and looks modern. Multi-tier cakes can also be placed well on it.

You should first consider whether such a stand fits your location and the style of your wedding. If the cake is really unusual, a minimalist cake stand is ideal.

In addition, metal is robust, relatively inexpensive and can be easily dismantled – making it easy to transport.

Cake stand made of plastic

The wedding cake stand made of plastic is very pragmatic.

It’s reasonably priced, easy to clean and easy to transport. Unfortunately, the optics often fall by the wayside.

It’s best to see if you can find a plastic cake stand that you like – then it is a good choice.



3. Rent or buy cake stands for the wedding?

If you have your wedding cake made by a pastry chef, the question of buying or renting it automatically falls flat, as most pastry chefs have wedding cake stands in stock and give them to you directly. The wedding cake is then delivered with a stand and you simply have to return it after the wedding.

If your pastry chef doesn’t have the exact shape you would like, then you either have to change pastry chefs or buy or rent your own cake stand.

Since you will hardly bake such a large cake in everyday life, it often makes more sense to rent a wedding cake stand. Compare prices here!

Certainly some pastry chefs in the area also have a few cake stands that they like to rent out cheaply. The rental costs are between € 15 and € 75, depending on the size.



4. Buy beautiful wedding cake stands

If you bake your wedding cake yourself, you should look around for a wedding cake stand in advance. Not that you bake the cake and then have to order a matching wedding cake stand, which can be very expensive.

If you can’t find a suitable cake stand to rent, you can also buy cheap wedding cake stands and then sell again if necessary.

Our tip:

If you have a wedding cake with several levels, you can buy three or four chic wedding cake stands in different heights instead of the classic cake stand – this gives the look of a cake stand, but you can use the stands later even better.

Cake stand for one-tier wedding cakes

If you only bake a one-tier wedding cake, it is definitely worth buying a special cake stand for the wedding. After all, you will probably use it more often later and also have a nice memory of the wedding at the same time.

It is important that the cake plate matches the style of your wedding. From classic to vintage to rustic, there is a suitable cake stand for a wedding for every taste.
