Buying Guide

Are you looking for the right pedestal cake plates and have no idea where to begin? Do you have questions regarding their color and size? If so, you're not alone. Many who love baking and presenting cakes to their families have these questions. They would love to do something special but have no idea what's the best choice regarding pedestal cake plates. With that in mind, we're going to go over some basics to help you decide.

The measurements of the pedestal cake plates you select are going to depend on how large or small the cake is you’re baking. You’ll find this is especially true if you’re baking a wedding cake. The size of the cake, as well as its weight, are two considerations you’re going to have to make when selecting your pedestal. Here are some options when looking at those two factors regarding a round cake:

  • A ten-inch pedestal cake plate can hold up to 40 lbs.
  • A twelve-inch pedestal cake plate will hold 75 lbs.
  • A fourteen-inch pedestal cake plate will up to 110 lbs.

If you’ve chosen to bake a cake that’s a simple size, then you can use a cake pedestal that’s the same height as it is and it will create a cohesive look. In addition, these sizes will also work best for cake plates that feature domes or covers.

The plate you set the cake on is acting as a decorative element just as much as the cake itself. Therefore, it deserves just as much attention regarding its attention to detail. Here are some options:

  • Clear Crystal: these pedestal cake plates allow you to showcase your masterpiece on glimmering pieces of crystal. Not only do they feature cut accents and ornate details but may also include a dome cover.
  • Colored Glass: these stands are sometimes opaque or translucent. Their details range from opulently scalloped to smooth curves.
  • Aluminum: for those who are looking for something contemporary, the modern lines of a square shaped aluminum cake stand is the optimal solution.
  • Wood: rustic and old-world style designs are the best match for these cake stands.

Under some circumstances, it’s also possible to find pedestals that rotate. These are optimal for when you’re frosting or decorating. You can turn the cake on the pedestal as you decorate to create a more uniform look.

Matching colors of pedestal cake plates is a lot like selecting paint colors for a room. You’re going to choose colors that coordinate with the colors of the frosting, fondant, and decorations on the cake. You may decide to choose contrasting colors, a monochromatic theme, muted tones, or one that’s based on a preselected color palette. If you’re unsure which color is best, consider selecting a transparent glass or white pedestal to place the cake upon instead. Then, you can dress it up with ribbons, linen, cake boards, or other elements as a means of introducing color.
