Looking for an alternative way to display your wedding cake? A cake hoop could be the perfect finishing touch to your big day bake. Part wedding cake stand, part decorative piece, a wedding cake hoop stand typically has a base where your wedding cake sits and a large hoop that surrounds the sponge, creating a spectacular statement.
"Cake hoops can help to create an extra special eye-catching feature of your wedding cake. They are an elegant addition and ensure the cake ties in well with your wedding décor," explains Olivia Roper, owner and baker behind Olivia Bakes.
They are lots of designs to choose from, including crescent hoops and metallic finishes, plus you can decorate them to suit your wedding theme. Olivia says that "floral hoops are definitely becoming more popular", but you can also adorn yours with foliage and fairy lights.
"Lots of couples like to add florals to match their wedding florals or allow their cake to do most of the talking by adding some simple dark green ruscus or eucalyptus to their cake hoop stand. One of my current favourite styles is to add a floral meadow around the base of the cake with some simple dark greenery adorning the hoop."
Our edit of cake hoops includes everything from floral hoops for a wedding cake to gold hoop wedding cake stands!

What is a Wedding Cake Hoop?
A cake hoop is a decorative piece that is used to display your wedding cake.
"This eye-catching stand can really enhance the visual impact of your wedding cake and you can attach florals or greenery to them to create a standalone feature," says Olivia Roper, owner and baker behind Olivia Bakes.
"There are lots of different styles, including smaller ones that can be attached directly to your cake, but my favourite is a broken hoop steel and reclaimed wooden one by the fabulous Bramble Sky."
How to Attach a Floral Hoop to a Wedding Cake Stand?
If you already have a wedding cake stand and want to give it a floral finish, you can easily attach a floral hoop.
Olivia explains that "floral hoops usually come with a removable base that can be secured to the hoop part with re-useable zip ties or glue dots. Some designs rests comfortably in their wooden base and don't usually need to be secured."
