I owned 18" ones. I can always put a small cake on a large plateau but it's hard to put a large cake on a small plateau!! icon_biggrin.gif Most of my cakes had a 14" base; when put on a 16" cardboard, then placed on an 18" plateau, it balanced.

When I had a 12" base cake, the space gap would be filled with rose petals or other decor.

Check out the link for sav on crafts like debi suggested. I just bought their 18 inch stand for $62 and it's beautiful and so elegant!!! Great service.....I received the stand in about 4 days from date of purchase. I looking it so much I'm going to buy the smaller one for $52. Or you can always check eBay

hi. a realy nice owner of a bakery told me that if you can't find a nice stand you can create your own with a cake tin turned upside down and a bit of imagination. I took his advice and used a 16''board on a 14'' tin (because that is the largest tin size I had) and covered it with fabric.

I'm wondering how to clean them. I have two 18 inch ones in silver plate that both need polishing. Any suggestions??

I bought a silver cleaner at the Dollar General. Worked great!

I have bought some at sav-on crafts, e-bay, and pottery barn. I have made my own stands too. I have silver square ones at 14 and 20 inches. I have silver round ones at 12, 14 and 19 inches.
I also have several wooden, ceramic, and glass pedestal stands. If you come to the ICES convention in Charlotte this August, I am slated to do a demo on making your own cake stands! icon_smile.gif

I had a couple of the silver stands and my brides always wanted something different, something more contemporary. My brother made made me several and almost every bride I have now rents one. He has started selling them through Etsy, take a look at some of his designs.
