We're suckers for cake stands. Yes, they're awfully trendy (and have been for a while now) but we can't get over them. We're currently loving these nickel dessert stands from Room Service Home. They are definitely luxury splurges, with hand-blown, etched glass cloche covers. We quite like their elegant look and the height they could add to a buffet table.
