About 3 Tier Cake Stands
If you have ever been to a party, and the hostess went to amazing lengths to create beautiful cupcakes, and then displayed them on a paper plate, a 3-tier cake stand would make an excellent gift. The graduated tiers offer an ideal way to display the cupcakes. All three tiers can be filled with cupcakes, or the top tier can hold a small cake while the bottom two are filled with cupcakes. For elegant affairs, 3-tier glass cake stands with crystal swags encircling the tiers adds a sophisticated touch to the dessert table. Tiered cake stands are available in many materials, including colored vintage glass, sterling silver, and acrylic. Standard size cake stands are 5.5 inches on the top tier, 7.5 inches on the middle tier, and 8.8 inches on the bottom tier. Footed cake stands sit one tier atop the other without attaching. Other stands lock in place on the center rod while many acrylic stands snap into place. Many cake stands are dishwasher safe and store in a space-saving flat position. You can find a vast inventory of 3-tier cake stands on eBay.
