Bespoke Cake Stands from Let them eat Cake

If you love the idea of a vintage cake stand but can’t see quite what you want from our wide range of cake stands in our Let them eat Cake shop, we also offer a bespoke cake stand service.

Creating a bespoke cake stand from our china

We can create a bespoke cake stand for you from our vintage china, to fit a colour scheme, style, size or a special occasion. However, as all of our china is sourced and creatively mismatched, to find specific pieces or colours will take us time, so its best to contact us to let us know what you are after and we can discuss the options with you.

Creating a bespoke cake stand from your special china

Inherited or precious china is a lovely reminder of special people and times. But how often do you use it? Does it sit on a shelf or in a cupboard, loved but un-used?

We can breathe new life into your old china by turning pieces into a cake stand for you to enjoy for years to come.

A bespoke cake stand made from family china makes a very special and totally unique wedding, birthday, Christmas or anniversary gift. A truly modern heirloom.

And don’t forget, one set of old china could yield several cake stands – enough for one each and precious memories all round!

How does it work?

Contact us to discuss our bespoke cake stand service in full. In the meantime, here are some pointers…

You select and send us the china pieces you want us to use. Check them for flaws. We think fading and light crackling in the glaze add to the charm, but cracks and chips are a no-no. Wrap each piece carefully and separately.

We recommend a courier rather than regular post for china. We can suggest couriers and even arrange pick up if you like. We’ll simply pass on the charge as billed to us – usually around £5. We can also arrange insurance through the courier if you want it.

Allow 14 days for delivery of your cake stand, though if you have an urgent request call and we’ll do our best to help.

If your cake stand is a gift (or even if it isn’t!) we can supply you with a lovely box, for a small extra charge.

We can make pedestal and tiered cake stands. If you have just a single plate we can source other vintage plates to make you a tiered stand, if that’s what you’d like… This service takes longer as it takes time to find the right china to mix with yours. You can’t rush creativity.

So do drop us a mail and we can see how we can make your bespoke cake stand dreams come true!
