Cake stands, both old and new, are beautiful. Modern ones are clean and chic and vintage ones have so much character. Not only can they be used to serve cakes, but they provide many other uses in the kitchen and can be used as art pieces and decor around the home…
Provide a dropping place for keys and spare change on a small table in the entryway.
Serve desserts (other than cake) and other finger foods or appetizers.
Place often worn jewelry or makeup on it and display on your dresser.
Create a centerpiece for a small table using candles, flowers or fruit (fresh or artificial).
Use it in a bathroom to display bath products for use.
The options are endless. Would love to hear if you have any other uses for the cake stand. Cake stands can be purchased pretty much anywhere. I found my light blue one at an antique store in the burbs; got a great price on it because of a minor nick on the underside of the glass…I obviously put up a stink to get that price!
