Why Choose Acrylic?

Styling Your Acrylic Cake Stand

To style an acrylic cake stand for any occasion, one must consider both aesthetics and stability. Whether showcasing a dummy cake or a real confection, the approach to styling should enhance the cake's beauty while ensuring it remains securely in place.

  • For a dummy cake, attach it to the clear tier using royal icing, ganache, or buttercream in a matching color to create a seamless look.
  • When dealing with a real cake, proper doweling is essential to support the weight. Attach each tier with the same adhesives used for dummy cakes to maintain consistency in appearance.
  • Conceal any dowel marks or adhesive residues by pressing down sugar paste, tinted to match the cake, into the bottom of the clear tier, ensuring a clean edge.
  • To add the top tier, spread a layer of royal icing, ganache, or buttercream onto the clear tier, then carefully position and secure the upper tier.
  • Stenciling on acrylic adds a decorative touch; spread royal icing over a stencil, then scrape away the excess for a precise design.

Care and Maintenance

Caring for an acrylic cake stand from Joey'z Shopping is straightforward and ensures that it maintains its clarity and luster for future celebrations. 

  • Gentle Cleaning: Mix a soft detergent with water and use this solution to clean the stand. Avoid harsh detergents that can damage the acrylic surface.
  • Dry Thoroughly: After washing, immediately dry the stand with a soft, dry cloth to prevent water spots from forming.
  • Scratch Prevention: Never use scrubbing cloths or abrasive cleaners on your acrylic cake stand. These can cause scratches that dull the clear finish.
  • Buff to Shine: For a quick refresh, buff the stand with clean water and a lint-free cloth, which can help the acrylic look new again.
  • Regular Maintenance: Regularly wipe the surface with a dry, lint-free cloth to remove debris. For a deeper clean, use soapy water and a lint-free cloth, then dry thoroughly with a fresh cloth.
  • Smart Storage: When not in use, the stand can be a perfect storage solution for delicate sugar flowers, keeping them safe and dust-free.
  • Regular Cleaning: This not only enhances its appearance but also prevents any yellowing or clouding that can occur over time, ensuring that your stand remains a reliable and stylish part of your entertaining toolkit.

Top Uses for an Acrylic Cake Stand

Acrylic cake stands are celebrated not only for their elegance but also for their versatility, serving a variety of purposes beyond simply showcasing cakes. 

  • Multipurpose Display: Swap out the cake for a decorative arrangement and the acrylic stand becomes a centerpiece in its own right. Place a bowl of vibrant fruit, an array of candles, or an assortment of knickknacks to tailor the stand to the theme of your event or the decor of your space.
  • Diverse Settings: These stands are a staple in professional settings such as bakeries, cafes, and restaurants, as well as at catered events like weddings, birthday parties, and christenings. Their clear, sleek design enhances the visual appeal of any dessert, making them a popular choice for food display.
  • Savory and Sweet Presentations: Acrylic stands aren't limited to cakes; they are perfect for displaying a variety of treats. Imagine a stand layered with mini sandwiches for a high tea, an assortment of macaroons for a sweet touch, or even a selection of mini cheesecakes and tiramisu for a decadent dessert table.
