I have to do a 3 tier cake, being 4,6,4(client wants..) and she wants a tall glass cake stand measuring min. 4-5". The question I have is what would your recommendation be for height and heavyness of the foot of stand or wideness. Her desire is to have the cake look TALL..so she wants the stand tall. Reasoning I"m asking is because I'm nervous about how the stand would hold those 3 tiers and whether 4-5" would work as minimum and if I find taller like 6" , would that work? I'm looking at bigger, wider, heavy bases stands for sturdyness. Please help me! I'm soo confused! Want this to be great and hold up well!

williams sonoma has some nice strong pedestal stands. I got one that is clear glass 13" wide and maybe 4-5" tall. It's completely flat and fairly thick. I think I paid $60-$70 for it. I've put a 12", 10" 8" and 6" on it. I rent it out for $40, it has well paid for itself. They have a lot of different styles, if you have a store near you that you can go to, I think you would find a lot of good options.

Do you have a Crate & Barrel near you? I found this on their web site. It's for a 6-inch wide pillar candle, but I think you could put a cake on it:

My mistake. It's 6 inches tall, holds a 3-inch candle.

I bought mine at the store and it's glass. They still have it last time I was there a few weeks ago, I don't know why it's not online.

Do you usually provide the stand? If my client wants something special for the stand, I tell them to get it and give it to me ahead of time. I am too busy making cakes to run around looking for a stand that I will probably never use again.

I usually don't provide but this time around, I am because I can use it quite often actually, so that is why. It can be in the range of $60-100 ..just need to make sure it's sturdy to hold the 3 tiers and as stated before, as long as it has a bigger stem/wider and is heavy,,it should be ok right? Does it really make a difference on the height difference of 4-6"? Thanks again!
