Oh boy, do I really want to know something right rock throwing at me for this, but what is a cake plateau? I'm thinking it's a cake platter on a close am I?

I froogled it and came up as the best place to buy. I checked it out. The prices are great but I don't know if they sell in small quantities or to the public. Let us know if you decide to shop there.

I actually just had to buy a 14" Silver Cake Stand (Plateau). I was usually $80.00, and it was on sale for $50. Plus if you spent $60 you got free shipping. So I bought my mom a birthday gift too. I didn't know what size you would need. Hope this helps a little at least.

Jscakes, it is usually the term used for a silver or sometimes brass cake base stand. It is usually raised about 3 or 4 inches, with a flat top, sometimes with small feet. Very old idea that is new again. Some are heavily embossed, some are plain, they can be brushed or shiny finished. Some are described as having a mirror finish. Some people engrave them with a monogram or message. They are generally silver plated nickel, some are better quality than others.

Well JSCakes, we all didn't know what they were when they started using the term, I don't think it has been in use all that many years, maybe a couple when these made a comeback thanks to Martha Stewart and others that had the antique ones. They used to call them silver wedding cake stands or bases or plates, so there you go. Haha, I guess the term "plateau" is appropriately sophisticated, I call them expensive silver cake thingies, haha!
