|Traditional Tearoom Cake Stand|
Did you know that the traditional tearoom cake stand is used to serve savouries as well as cakes?
The bottom tier is for ‘finger sandwiches’. Simply cut the crusts from the bread and slice into 3 ‘fingers’. For a more refined sandwich try 3 layers of bread instead of 2 with complimentary fillings.
The middle tier is for plain scones served with jam and cream and the top tier is for dainty cakes and sweet pastries.
Pink Roses and Pastel Green Mismatched Teacup Top Cake Stand
If you have a 3 tier china cake stand, instead of the metal framed tearoom style, you can still serve a variety of goodies on each plate. We like to serve crudities in the teacup of our teacup top cake stands. Dips can be served in teacups instead of in bowls.

In fact we use teacups to serve all sorts of things such as jelly, trifle, cupcakes and sometimes cocktails. It’s just a case of using your imagination to create a fun afternoon tea party with a difference.
