Brief History of Cake Stand

The cake stand is a symbol of elegance and wealth. The use began in late Victorian times when afternoon tea became popularized among English people, who wanted to be classy enough for this new craze that had taken over their country.

They also needed something more durable than china dishes to enjoy flawless service from housekeepers without worrying about breakage or getting mixed up with other food items on dinner tables during courses.

  1. Glue the wooden part to the center of the coster. You can use a ruler to measure each side to get it exactly in the middle.
  1. Then let the glue dry for 24 hours face down, meaning the coster is resting on the table.

I really love these for individual place settings for a baby shower, bridal shower, or birthday party.

Each guest can have a cupcake waiting for them when they sit down to eat. I mean, who doesn’t like dessert before dinner?!

You can even customize the cake stands by using alphabet coasters! These would make great party favors for guests.

Mini Cake Stand Guide


There are two types of cake stands which are functional and display: Functional stand allows you to ice and decorate every inch of your masterpiece. They’re made from materials like acrylic or stainless steel to ensure durability for years in this world!

Meanwhile, display cake stands flaunt your cakes after you are done decorating them. They are made from food-grade acrylic, metal or wrought iron. Often times enhanced with tassels, beads and fun colors.


To prevent any damage from occurring during transportation or storage, your mini cake must be at least as big as your tier and cake board. A little bit bigger will be fine, but never smaller!


The cake stand should complement the design and color of your special day, remaining unobtrusive while it takes all attention. white goes well with every look; however, if you want something more matching on style, then go ahead and choose one in colors that match what’s underneath!

    one more question, how did you get the cork off the back of the coasters? Hopefully it’s an easy enough task since I have about 30 to make.
