Purchasing cake pedestals

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Where are you finding reasonably priced cake pedestals? I'd love to buy a large tall white one for photographing but I'm not paying over $150.00 for a 14" cake stand that's glass. I'm bound to chip or break it!!

 

The main use for me would be for photographing my cakes. I rarely have a cake base smaller then 14" so anything smaller then that is useless. It's really hard to find larger pedestals......

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but thought I'd post in case it works for you. Ebay can be a good place to search, but you never know what you'll find.

It's not white...but the price is great.   Hobby Lobby always has a 14" silver one in the wedding section.   They are $49.99....with your $40 off one item coupon, the price can't be beat!  I have 2 because I do a lot of 6/10 combos...I put them on a 14" drum and use this plateau all the time.

I have found some really pretty ones in antique stores, lots of milk glass or depression glass in pretty colours.

My plain white one I found at homegoods for $40ish.

 

I also buy quite a bit from this site, http://www.webstaurantstore.com/2445/cake-and-pie-display-stands-and-covers.html

I didn't really look through to see if they have a nice white one, I get plateaus, glass and stainless steel pedestals form them. Some you have to by in lots though.

I needed 6 stainless ones for a wedding last year, so I bought form them and sold the extras on craigslist :P

I'm really searching for something white and tall. Think Maggie Austin photos...... are her cakes that small or the pedestals that expensive?

Those are Sarah stands...and they are pricey. They just released a lower priced line.

Yes, I think I looked at the lower price line.............it was still over $150. for a glass 14" pedestal. That's not in my budget, I break things. I'll only spend that on something not breakable....and I already have those items.

Yep, I was going to come in here and say Sarah's Stands. The new line starts at $95 I believe they're carbon steel.

Glass? They're either metal or wood.
