With that being said, it's no wonder it's a popular design for wedding cakes. In this cake we used rhinestones, as well as brooches and the topper that the bride provided to bring some extra pizazz and bling to this cake. The rest of the cake we kept understated, with tone-on-tone bows, pearls, and fondant swags.
A few months ago I got a tremendous deal on some 24-row rhinestones from Bead & Trim. I finally decide that they would malke for a beautiful cake stand! So I called up my brother at My Woodworking Solutions and we set out to design a stand. Luckily, he finished it just days before this cake was to be delivered . I know this picture doesn't do it justice, but it really does sparkle! It's like sitting your cake on top of a disco ball! And it is designed really well also. The stand as you see it is in 3 pieces; a top, the main middle bling piece, and the bottom. Since the rhinestones are expensive this gives you the opportunity to use the stand with multiple (lower cost) tops and bottoms to get a variety of effects. He came up with the idea and I really liked it! I'm not sure if he offering this stand for sale, but if you're interested, hit him up on Etsy!
