With its unique cantilever design, this cake stand combines beautiful aesthetics and perfect engineering, to produce a conversation piece which is both ornamental and useful.
The two platters slot onto the tapered post and rest solidly in place when the stand is in use, but can be easily lifted off for packing away. There are no fixtures or fittings required to make up the cake stand and keep it stable, just slot the post into the base and the platters onto the post. However, there is the facility fix the post to the base with a removable bolt, in case you want to lift the stand up by the post when it is full of cakes.
All four components are finished with a food-safe wax/oil product, which protects the wood and provides a sealed surface so that it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth after use.
Note that this does not necessarily have to be used as a cake stand! It could be used for displaying any items – from other edibles such as canapés or chocolates to non-edibles such as jewellery or precious ornaments.
The cake stands are made from solid wood and are available in a variety of wood combinations. The post and base are always the same wood type and the two platters are always the same wood type.
Currently available combinations are walnut or cherry post and base with either maple or ash platters. The cake stand shown above has a walnut post and base with maple platters.
