Arthur Court Grape 14-Inch Covered Cake Tray with Glass Dome


A glass cake stand or cake tray makes a stunning centerpiece for your table and brings timeless, stylish elegance to your display. Whether you are looking for something traditional or ultra modern there will be plenty of designs to choose from.

This type of cake stand is available in a wide range of styles including domed, pedestal, plates, cake tray and three tier cake stands. Many are suitable for very special occasions including being used as a wedding cake stand. Manufacturers such as Luigi Bormioli and Arthur Court produce some excellent pieces.

It is possible to obtain a really nice glass stand for very little outlay. At the same time there are some stands which are the ultimate in elegance but are going to set you back quite a bit! For example, take a look at the Arthur Court cake dome shown at the top of the page. This is just gorgeous and so opulent in design. This would impress even the most picky mother-in-law!

This cake stand measures 14" and has a has a raised base with a clear glass dome. It is perfect for showing off a large cake or fancy dessert. This is part of a range so you can get matching items to start a collection and create a really stunning effect.

The base must be hand washed, as you might expect, but the top is actually dishwasher safe. Not sure I would risk it personally! This currently sells at around $195 at Amazon. Not the cheapest cake stand in the world but there is a lot of craftsmanship involved. You can check the current price through the link above as prices can fluctuate.

There is something very appealing about a glass cake dome. Perhaps its the nostalgia effect because they remind us of a time when the eating of cake was a far more formal ritual than it is today. The pleasures of afternoon tea should never be underestimated!
