Glass Cake Plates

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have read at Polly's Cakes (www.pollyscakes.com) that most of her cakes are on glass plates and I love that look. I have seen this a few times at weddings in the past, but I am having a hard time finding flat glass plates -- especially large sizes icon_sad.gif . Does anyone know of a website/company that sells these plates?

Thanks,

Amy

Hi Amy,

It looks to me as though she is using glass table tops, without the base!

Here is a website of a company where you can order just the table tops:
You can calculate the perfect size/shape/color of glass for your needs:
http://www.miror.com/retaillogin.asp and get a quick online price quote

Also, I have noticed that my local Michael's carries glass table tops as well. I think if you start thinking "table tops" instead of "cake plates" you are more likely to find what you are looking for icon_smile.gif

I would say that is just not any glass .... It would have to be something that is shater proof she could not take the chance of the glass breaking with a cake on it..


You could aways drop her a message asking her what she uses and where she got it..


If you find out please share I like the look that they have with the glass under them .

Thank you for your help! I've checked out the website and I am going to call them on Monday.

I plan to research this further this weekend and I will let you know what I find out!

Thanks again!! Amy

Yes it would most likely have to be tempered glass. Also, the link I posted above allows you to specify the thickness of the glass. anywhere from 1/8" to 3/4" thick.

Okay, I emailed the recommended glass website and they quickly responded. He said that he would recommend 1/4" thickness, but did not say tempered/nontempered (I emailed him back asking this specifically), although they do offerred tempered. I have emailed another company I found to compare prices.

Thanks again!

I just wanted to update you guys on what I have found.

The online glass companies were approximately $40-55 per 14" finished circle (for example) plus $20-30 for shipping. I called a local glass company today from the yellow pages and they can do the same for $8 and, of course, no shipping charges. They actually said that they have done these in the past.

So, check with your local glass companies.

Thanks for your help!!!!!

I would also try the resturant and catering supply companies. Our catering department uses glass and mirrored surfaces to serve on for that elegant look.

What about plexi-glass? You don't have to worry about the breakage.
