The Best Cake Toppers, Stands & Accessories for Your Dessert Table

The dessert table is hugely popular in the states but we’re glad to say it’s having a bit of a moment here too! Couples with a sweet tooth are dishing up an assortment of sweeties and baked treats come dessert time so guests can help themselves to a mouth-watering mix of goodies. Of course, desserts are appealing on something as simple as a piece of kitchen paper but if you’re looking to make a focal point out of your dessert table and ensure it looks as pretty as the sweet stuff that’s on it, some cute stands, toppers and dishes will really make it look the part.

Whether you’re looking for a gorgeous pedestal to showcase your fab wedding cake or some elegant domes to display baked treats, stores like The Wedding Shop and Debenhams have some lovely buys that will help you create an amazing display (plus they’ll be right at home in your kitchen afterwards). We’ve also included some cute paper bags, awesome toppers (including some very cool personalised ones from some of Ireland’s best wedding cake topper designers) and other candy buffet accessories that will help you make a memorable display. Check out some of the prettiest finds we came across below…

P.S. Cakes stands are also available to hire from several wedding cake and wedding décor specialists, to find out more visit our Wedding Supplier Directory. And if you’ve yet to find your dream cake, check out weddingsonline’s online directory of wedding cake designers in Ireland here!
