Hi CC

Does anyone know where I can find, other than the Wilton one, ceramic cake stands like the one at the top of this page (2-tier chocolate with white flower)? I am looking for a cake stand with a 9" plate.

Don't know if you have Homegoods/TJ Max in your area but here they have stands similar to that one.

YESSSSS!!!!!!
I have an addiction to cake stands I have entirely too many of them. TJMaxx/HomeGoods usually has lots of them in different styles. For White ones Macy's has the Martha Stewart Line or I think you can them on her website. Ebay usually has tons. Amazon will have lots too.

Hope that helps it is a start at least

Glad you found what you were looking for! I have to agree that "trolling" stores like Marshall's, Ross, Tuesday Morning, and TJ Maxx often results in great finds. I, too, am addicted to cake stands and just last week I found a wonderful, heavy, white one at Ross with a scroll pattern around the rim. The only label on it said "Handmade in Portugal" with a picture of a rooster. I think I paid $10 for it. My 8" cake fit perfectly.

Here's what it looks like in case someone else is looking for one. I'm assuming some of these stores receive some of the same products, even if they are closeouts.

Do they have any online? I am not in an area where I can go shop at a retail establishment. So I have to shop online.

Anyone have any good suggestions for cake stands that I can purchase online or create myself?

I purchased all three sizes of these white stands from www.abcdistributing.com. Pay close attention to the sizes because they were smaller than I expected, but they are adorable and were inexpensive. They are real cute when stacked or used in a grouping. I regularly shop [url]www.amazon.com[\\url] and [url]www.overstock.com[\\url] looking for baking stuff and cake stands.

I have several of the 12" milk glass cake plates. I highly recommend them. They are heavy as hell and look great.

Glad you like them! And at $4.95, $5.95, and $7.95 each, you can't beat the price! I think the smaller one will come in quite handy for photographing a special cupcake or miniature cake. So many cakes I want to bake; so little time. icon_sad.gif

I haven't found a 9" yet, but http://www.macys.com]Macy's has these beautiful Martha Stewart ones in 8", 10", and 12" - round (cream) or square (white). I LOVE the square ones! Boy, it's a good thing I gave up credit cards...we'd have cake stands on every horizontal surface of our home!

Oh! My birthday's coming up! PM me for my address if you feel compelled to ship me one. icon_biggrin.gif

I'll keep looking.

Do you lend out your pretty cake stands or do you place the cakes for clients on a foam board?

I don't really have "clients" per se since I mostly bake for family and friends. I have loaned cake stands to really close friends, but only relatively inexpensive stands that I have purchased.

I did see a site once that sold a cake that came with a matching ceramic stand. The stand was "free" with the purchase of the cake, but I dare say it was included in the price! I suspect that it was a stand that they purchased wholesale from a company like Ganz, so it was a relatively low cost to them. I thought it was ingenious to market the two as a "custom cake and matching stand".

That is a neat idea. I love it. I always fear my stand will return broken or scratched or chipped or something. I rarely bake for others (in a client/ baker relationship) that I use a stand. Usually foam board but I like this idea so much more. Thank you!
