When it comes to baking, there are two aspects that take precedence: taste and presentation. Now, while I think we can all agree flavor is the more important of the two, there’s something to be said about a sweet treat that looks as good as it tastes — and there’s a lot that goes into baking presentation, from simple things like glazes and frosting to more intricate decorating techniques like delicate piping and fondant application. But perhaps the easiest way to dress up these delicacies is with a gorgeous cake stand. Don’t let the name fool you — cake stands are a great way to display more than just your favorite Bundt. From your favorites pies to even savory bites, a cake stand is a must for any baker who likes to throw on their hostess cap from time to time. Below, we rounded up 10 cake stands that’ll brilliantly show off your next great bake.
