As Leonardo Da Vinici once said… Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. How very, very true. This statement came to mind when we first saw the new cake stand collection, Simply Stunning, by Sarah’s Stands. The stands in her newest collection are simple, elegant and modern and they could easily mold their way into any event.
From Sarah’s Picture Perfect and Natural Beauty collections to the newest, Simply Stunning, we love all of her designs! We’re excited to introduce you to her and also welcome her as a wedding Vendor We Heart! Meet Sarah below…
What inspired you to start Sarah’s Stands?
The inspiration for a cake stand company came when my husband and I were planning our wedding and I could not find any larger cake stands for our wedding cake. I searched endlessly but my options were scarce. The few cake stands I did find were either too small, out-dated looking or poorly made. It couldn’t be this hard to find a cake stand, could it? Frustrated with my lack of choices, I quickly became obsessed until finally I decided to design my own line of cake stands. I made a list of all the attributes I wanted in a cake stand; a classic pedestal shape, lots of color options, a range of larger sizes, a completely flat top plate, and a material strong enough to hold the weight of tiered cakes. I combined these elements together and created what I consider to be the perfect cake stand. I hope you enjoy using our cake stands as much as I have enjoyed making them.

Our cake stands are designed with a simple concept in mind, to be the stage on which the cake will shine. The classic pedestal shape elevates and enhances the cake making it the center of attention while the pop of color adds a modern touch. And, they are created specifically with larger cakes in mind. The sturdy base and strong top plate ensure that our cake stands can hold the weight of tiered cakes, while the proportions allow you to cut on them without worry. Our cake stands are constructed here in the United States and we are proud to offer a top of the line cake stand that will truly make your cake stand out. Better still, your cake stand will become a cherished memento from your big day that will be used for years to come.
If you could give one tip to couples who are planning a wedding, what would it be?
Well, I have two tips…
1) Use the Right Size Cake Stand: Get that picture perfect look like you see in wedding magazines. Your cake stand should be the same size or a little bigger than the bottom tier of your cake. Go bigger if you plan to have decorations, like flowers, around the cake.
2) Decorate Your Cake Board: There’s nothing worse than seeing a naked cake board sticking out from the bottom of a cake. It’s like a woman whose slip is showing from underneath her dress. Ask your cake designer to decorate the cake board to match your cake. Better yet, have the cake board “disappear” by incorporating it into the bottom tier of your cake.
Wedding Cake, cupcakes, or a candy bar? Which is your personal fave?
Definitely, cake! There is something so decadent about a big slice of a cake on a plate. Sinking your fork through all the yummy layers to get that perfect bite. There’s nothing like it. It always makes me feel like a kid again.
