Cake boards and stands FAQs

What is a cake stand?

A cake stand is a raised piece of tableware, usually made from glass or plastic, that is used to display and serve cakes. They can have multiple tiers on them, usually up to three, and are designed to lift the cake off the table and show it off above any other food. Plastic, metal, card and wooden cake stands are the most common types you'll find, although glass and marble are also available.

How do I use cake dowels?

Chill your cake, as dowels go better into a cold cake. Place a long dowel in the centre of your bottom cake that will be able to pierce through every layer you have, then insert dowels around the centre that will support your next layer. Press the second layer onto these dowels, and repeat this process until your layers are finished.

Do I need a cake board?

If you are transporting a particularly thick or heavy cake, a cake board is a must-have item that will give you peace of mind. Not only are they strong, but you can cut your cake and serve slices directly off it, rather than having to move it to another board or platter.
