There aren’t many things more civilised than taking afternoon tea with cakes presented on a tiered cake stand. The wonderfully named Let Them Eat Cake specialise in making cake stands from vintage china.
Their readymade selection includes pieces made from bright coloured crockery from the Forties, Fifties and Sixties which is just the right side of twee. Many of the designs are topped off with a cup, which allows the stands to be used for serving goodies other than cakes. Let Them Eat Cake will also make cake stands using your own old plates, giving a new lease of life to mismatched pieces.
The readymade cake stands costs between £40 and £65, with prices on application for bespoke pieces. Visit the Let Them Eat Cake website for further details.
