Nothing screams “high tea” like a tiered cake stand loaded with wee sandwiches, quiches, cakes or scones. We have scoured around and found some pretty cake stands available online for your next tea party.
1. Maxwell and Williams Sprinkle 3 Tier Cake Stand
This cute little stand comes in a variety of modern colours with white polka dots and would be perfect for creating a bright, fun atmosphere at any tea party. Fill it full of cheerful cupcakes and serve with fruity and floral Luscious Lady Grey. They are available in red, orange, green, blue, yellow and purple from www.zanui.com.au for $29.95
2. Maxwell and Williams Kimono 3 Tier Cake Stand
This gorgeous cake stand would sit superbly on the table at a Japanese themed tea party. Consider serving some bite sized sushi and Japanese namagashi sweets along with Masumi Morning Glory and Rustic Rice Rebellion. This stand is available from www.zanui.com.au for $49.95
3. Design Your Own with DIY Handle Kits
Make your own cake stand with your own choice of plates using the hardware available from www.craftumi.com.au They sell complete handle kits and drill bits so you can convert your eclectic collection of vintage china into beautiful cake stands from $5.99
4. Koziol Babell 3-tier Dessert Stand
This bright coloured cake stand has a collapsible design making it easy to store in your cupboards. We think this stand would look fabulous with a selection of colourful macaroons and served with some Berry Gypsy Caravan and Big Ben Breakfast. These also come in red or white and are available from oo.com.au $49.95
5. S&P Fromage 3 Tier Wooden Cake Stand
We believe this would be the perfect stand for a cheese pairing tea party. We all know that cheese and wine go together but cheese and tea can be just as interesting. Tea contains tannin just as grapes and wines do and so combine very well with cheese. Try a selection of different textured cheeses and serve some simple Big Ben Breakfast, Dutch Earl Grey and maybe a Raspberry Oolong.
