We are all enjoying the sunshine this week and with temperatures reaching higher than those in Ibiza and with the World Cup in full swing, has there ever been a better time to have a BBQ?
Here at Crystal Clear Cake Stands we have put together some great BBQ party ideas using some of our most prized cake stands, don't worry cake isn't the only thing on the menu.
Decorative Glass Cake Dome and Plate
This simply gorgeous design isn't just meant for the café counter. With beautiful scripture running around the glass dome this stand alone will be an eye catching piece displayed in your party buffet table. The most glorious thing about this stand is it's height and lipped edge. Remove the lid and the stand almost looks like an old fashion champagne glass. Serve an ice cold fruity sorbet sprinkled with some mint and your guests can help themselves. You can even add a splash of alcohol for the grown ups. A dessert reminiscent of a 1920s party with a BBQ Party twist. For a decorative piece fill the stand with water and float tea lights on top, so pretty.
4 Tier Heart Shape Cupcake Stand
The sheer elegance of this pretty stand makes it ideal for serving many other delicious treats besides cupcakes. For a different twist, use the tiers as a way to serve delicate hors d'oeuvre for starters and then simply wash before serving dessert. Quick, simple and an excellent way to save on the washing up.
5 in 1 Multi Functional Cake Stand
This product has been mentioned many times before, but that's just because it is an essential item for throwing the perfect BBQ Party. The many functions of this stand will amaze as it can be turned into a punch bowl, salad bowl, dips and chips and a cake stand as well as a simple way to serve croutons. Use it so serve the starter and the dessert all in one without too many dishes littering the kitchen.
Clear Scroll Cake Stand
Well a party wouldn't be a party without a great centre piece. Not only can these refined stands hold the star of the show, the cake, they are also great for displaying flowers. Simply cut a few of your most favourite flowers and arrange them on top of your stand. These make a fabulous display and because it is unusual, it will be the talk of your BBQ Party. (See our flower arranging blog for more).
Cake Pop Stand
A perfect way to finish off a meal and a lighter way in all of this heat. The cake pop stand is a great way to show off your talents and their small size means that your guests will still have room even after all of those burgers. They are also perfect to serve if your BBQ party lands on a hot day as the steams stop fingers from getting sticky. Why not create a theme with cake pops, turning them into mini hotdogs or little BBQs (see our fathers day cake pop blog for more info).
There are so many ways to use cake stands and we encourage you to do the same, if you have any more great BBQ Party Ideas with your cakes stands that you would like to share then please message us on our Facebook or Google+ pages or simply Tweet us @CCDisplays.
