Frequently Asked Questions

What makes a good cake stand?

A good cake stand should be heavy and wide base. A heavy one would be stable and sleep the cake from falling and creating a mess. The heavyweight is helpful when used in high-traffic areas. The wide base prevents the breakage of the cake and keeps the cake intact. 

How big should a cake stand be?
