I have a customer that has ordered a 3 tiered zombie cake for her wedding in April. She has just called me to get my thoughts on a cake stand and what would look good with the cake. I told her I would come up with some ideas but I can't think of anything that would look good. Has anyone done a zombie cake with a stand before or does anyone have any ideas for one (either a store that has something or something I could make, it doesn't matter). Thanks in advance.
First of all I already LOVE your bride!!! Such a different kind of wedding cake. I would do a search for gothic cake stands and find something elegant and dark. Personally I love these stands
They are just dark enough but have some sparkle and they look amazing. I am ordering some as soon as I can!!
I also love that she wants to do a different type of wedding cake. I get tired of doing the same old white cake with flowers (boring). And I have designed it so that it is still semi weddingish (elegant kinda) but still look really cool (no blood or half eaten people). Anyways, those stands are really great, I have seen them before but could not find them. I am going to check to see if I can find them in round since the cake is round. Thanks for your input.
Another option would be a distressed would base. I'm thinking square, maybe 6 inches tall, stained and beat up. This would be if they wanted to make it themselves. But I naturally go to dark woods for halloween type cakes.
I did a 3 tier Zombie/ Vampire wedding cake over the summer. I was also at a loss for what type of stand to use so I worked in some silver accents on the cake and then used a silver stand. It looked great with the cake if you are unable to come up with anything else.
Good luck...it will be a fun cake to do!
