Draw attention to your cake with a dramatic cake stand. Carefully separate the metal clasps of a crystal garland to create a series of shorter crystal strands. Hook each strand over the rim of a high-stemmed, glass cake stand and secure with a strip of clear tape. Ensure the diameter of the cake board is identical to that of the cake stand.
Cake, £420 for 80 portions, Maki's Cakes. Cake stand, £42, LSA International. Crystal garland, £10.95 per metre, C Best.
