As an alternative to the traditional tower mounting of a three tier cake, cake maker Tracey Key (Totally Caked by Tracey) suggested three individual cake stands for each tier to be displayed side by side.
The result is this set of three stands made from tree sections and solid Oak. The tops are slices of tree trunk which are supported by Oak segmented columns mounted on Oak sectioned bases. The tops, columns and bases are bolted together and are interchangeable to allow customisation for brides and grooms in the future.
If the happy couple wanted a keepsake from the Wedding cake display, a bespoke base can be made with names, dates etc carved into it. This could then be made into a clock, plaque or base for a cloche do display the cake topper. The possibilities are vast and only restricted by the imagination.
In addition to the recessed Wedding Vows carved into each base, a further base insert was made from Oak and Mahogany to allow one stand to be used without the wedding related lettering. This additional base can be used alone or between the central column and large base to cover the lettering and give extra depth to the base.
When not used as a base to the cake stand, the Oak and Mahogany section can take a mirrored disc with Tracey’s name which in turn sits on a business card holder for Wedding fairs.
