Let Us Raise The Bar On That Wedding Cake,
A plateau is a "drum" style cake stand, which normally range in height from about 3” to 7”. Silver is the most readily available, but other types such as Suspended, Bling, Gold and Wrought iron are possible. Some plateaus are carved and ornate while others are plain and smooth. The plateau can add height and formality to your wedding cake and makes a very showy cake table. Currently, we offer a number of different sized square, round and a Octagon plateau available for rent as long as you are purchasing your wedding cake from Sweet Confections Cakes. The rental fee is $25.00 for Silver, Gold, Glass, or Wrought Iron Stands. Sorry, we do NOT rent cake stands OR plateau's if your wedding cake is NOT purchased from Sweet Confections Cakes.

Why Elevate Your Wedding Cake
Regardless of whether or not you rent a plateau from Sweet Confections Cakes, please consider using some type of elevation for your cake. If your cake table has a lot of decorations such as "puddled" linens, the bottom tier of your cake can get lost within the decorations. Something as simple as a plastic crate with a table cloth over it can work as an effective plateau. Be creative. We even offer tree stumps and crates for rustic, woodsland or an outdoor themed weddings.
Please remember the plateau will be supporting your cake and must be structurally sound and level. Also make sure that the plateau you choose compliments your cake. Typically, round cakes look good on round plateaus, square cakes look good on square plateaus. The size of the plateau in relation to your cake is also important. I can work with you to ensure your cake fits your plateau like a glove.
If I have not talked you into a plateau yet think about this, A plateau will add a whole tier to your cake for as little as $25! So, what are you waiting for?
