genuine milk glass with a lovely burnished finish - there are many copies available but Mosser Glass are considered the originals and must be the best you'll find anywhere
perfect for wedding and celebration cakes, cupcakes, desserts, afternoon tea, table centrepieces and entertaining
we appreciate you do not have the opportunity to inspect each individual stand prior to ordering, so we've included as much information as we possibly can to help you . . .
Mosser milk glass cake stands are created by craftsmen and women using valuable old moulds, which leave a seam running down the pedestal - this is a sign of genuine moulded glass not found on cheap copies
as featured in The Great British Bake Off and used by top cake makers
they're not cheap - they can't be, as each stand undergoes a 6 stage manufacturing and glazing process, taking over 3 hours to produce just one piece - plus just getting them here from the USA isn't exactly cheap!
colour is achieved using Erbium Oxide - a restricted and very expensive compound which gives milk glass its unique characteristics
IMPORTANT - each piece is very slightly different and occasionally there may be a brownish spot or line where erbium oxide is visible. These are normally very small and not noticed when viewing the stand from more than a few inches away, but please note any such marks are not regarded as faults - these are simply features of hand made milk glass
approx 12½" / 31cm / 310mm diameter
lipped plate edge should hold a 12 inch cake, pie or cake board but we've found that the hand-made nature of the stands, the variation in cake board sizes and the surprising fact that American inches are slightly different to Imperial inches mean they don't always fit, so you may be safer using an 11 inch cake drum
approx 9¼" / 23cm / 230mm high
pedestal base approx 6¾" / 17cm / 170mm diameter
weighs approx 3kg
Mosser do not state the max weight it can hold but, as a guide, a 12" cake stand can hold up to 34kg - it is essential to use a flat, stable surface and have heavy cakes perfectly centred to avoid stressing the glass
HANDLE WITH CARE - looks and feels like enamel or ceramic but please remember this is glass, so handle with care
