I can't decide on a cake stand! My cake will be a purple ombre cake with gold accents so I want to keep the stand simple! I'm either thinking clear acrylic, white, or something with gold! I have been looking at these! Let me see your cake stand!

    This is ours, it's so beautiful! We're renting it from the event company that is doing all our linens, decor and floral.

    @Summer Shut the front door, your cake stand is amazing! Love it! @VMDIZZLE thats such a smart idea. I wonder if I can DIY my stand and make it exactly what I want! I seriously might do that! Was it hard to stain?

    Mine is the feather cake stand in the middle. Instead of buying if from Etsy for a whopping $299...I bought a few feather boas and am going to craft it myself.

    Ok, but just because mine was AWESOME.

    Custom made steel owned by the baker, so yeah. But still. Awesome.

    @MoSunshine whats the base that you will attach the feathers. I'm thinking of trying to DIY it but I need a base to start.

    @beauty of dreams. Right now I am thinking a hat box that I will put weights in so it doesn't collapse.

    @Andrea Love it! What did you use to make the cake stand so that is sturdy enough to hold the cake?

    Thank you! I used solid Styrofoam that I got from the cake supply store.
