Motif Pie Stand

Motif Pie Stand

This pie stand is accentuated by an adorable bird motif that sits on top of the stand. Its exterior is made from powder-coated wrought iron, whereas the three plates are made from stoneware. The plates have a bright white finish.

Designer Advice:

You can swap out the plates of this pie stand if you have others you think would look nicer. So long as they don’t exceed 8.5 inches in diameter, the fit will be perfect. Nevertheless, the plates included are dishwasher and microwave safe, making them convenient for everyday use, too. Additionally, we love that the bird adds a vintage look.

Simple Wrought Iron Pie Stand

Simple Wrought Iron Pie Stand

Made from wrought iron, this pie stand is hand crafted for the best quality. It is also made in America, meaning it’s a good choice if you like to keep things local. Measuring 17.5 inches tall, there are three tiers included. 

Designer Advice:

The understated design of this pie stand is great if you want your baking to really shine. Its iron construction will mean it remains sturdy over the years, and it will also be able to hold more weight than thin plastic. However, be cautious that wrought iron will rust over time if exposed to sunlight for long periods of time.

Buying Guide

Tiered pie stands are brilliant to use for presentation, so whether you’re entering a competition, selling your bakes or looking for something which provides more effective storage, you can consider these accessories. There are so many different styles available that you’re bound to fall in love with one of them, even if you’re not particularly looking to buy one at the moment. Here are some important points to consider when looking at tiered pie stands and thinking about which one you should buy.

There are so many different styles available that it’s difficult to choose the perfect one. Many people end up buying more than one since they can’t choose which one is best for them! Here are some popular styles that you will see when shopping around for pie stands.

  • Curved metal wires: There are normally 3-4 tiers on stand of this style, and it’s a simple design which requires minimal aftercare. The metal plates will keep your pies secure when they are positioned on them, and the curved wires join each one to the next. Sometimes you will see leafy decorations and other embellishments to brighten up this simple style.
  • Natural tree trunk style: A very popular design which looks perfectly at home in shabby chic and rustic cottages and homes. Rather than being positioned directly on top of each other, the tiered are often positioned in slightly different places to allow steam to evaporate without being blocked, and to allow easier viewing of the different pies. You can also cut the pies or cakes easier without having other tiers blocking your way.

There is no answer for which material is ‘best’ for tiered pie stands, but you can certainly decide which one works best for you. Here are some of the common materials that you are bound to see on your journey to finding the perfect pie stand.

  • Wood: As briefly mentioned previously when considering styles, wood is a popular material used for pie stands. While it can be difficult to clean afterwards, the effect is one which draws much attention and is therefore ideal for cake shops and bakeries which are attempting a particular style. You should never fully immerse wooden kitchen accessories into water, but rather lightly wipe them with a damp cloth.
  • Metal: Metal and chrome are materials which you will see a lot. They are used on their own in different ways, but are also seen combined with materials such as wood. The stark contrast of wood and metal positioned together can be striking, but isn’t for everyone.
  • Ceramic: Very easily cleaned and more homely than metal, ceramic is a popular material for tiered pie stands. The plates may even have some slight detail on them in the form of a floral pattern or even a bakery themed pattern such as cupcakes or pies.

Top tip: Don’t forget to consider how many pies or cakes you will need to display at any one time. This will be useful for deciding how many tiers you should purchase for the stand.
