Cut-glass cake domes are perfect for displaying your homemade cakes, scones and muffins. 

Choose ones with frilled glass if you're looking for a prettiness that brings to mind traditional country fêtes and summer weddings - think old-fashioned cakes like Victoria sponges, Pavlovas and strawberry shortcakes.

To complete the look, present your cake dome on a crisp, white linen tablecloth or, better still, a vintage French table runner. Finish it off with a big vase of peonies, or a jam jar filled with wild flowers.

If you’d prefer something a little more contemporary, opt for simple glass cake domes.

Their modern styling makes them ideally suited to the newer, American style of baking – think cupcakes, whoopie pies and red velvet cakes.

Pedestal cake stands are particularly lovely because they make for a great table centrepiece.  

Plus, when you're not filling them with cakes,  you could use them to store fruit and vegetables too.

Tiered cake domes  are very practical and great if you're hosting a large party.

The additional tiers are great for baking in large quantities and they're often made from plastic, so they're f ar less likely to smash.

They're the perfect size for storing cupcakes, muffins and pastries, as well as cakes.

If you find vintage cake domes a bit fussy or twee, you could always opt for plastic cake domes.

Modern in style, many come with  simple, clean lines that allow the cakes themselves to do the talking.

Enjoy!
