Toscana Cake or Cheese Stand - 35 cm Diameter - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
This solid pewter cake stand, the larger of a set of two, handcrafted in Italy, is simply elegant, perfect for serving cheesecake or cup cakes, sponge or scones. A delicate, braided engraving detail around the edge gives this centrepiece a subtle decoration, making it special, yet not too fussy, leaving the drama to the food it is displaying.
As an evolution of the ritual of afternoon tea, in late Victorian times, there was a trend to display cakes at the table, elevating them upon a stem so that they could be easily seen. This fashion has continued, and the sight of a cake stand crowded with sweet tempting treats is an iconic one, promoting, literally, Pavlovian reflexes.
This beautifully understated stand also suits cheeses - it will 'elevate' your cheese course to new heights of enjoyment, especially if you allow any accompanying grapes to languidly trail off the edges - beautiful.
