Those beautiful multi-tier cake stands don't need to be used just for cakes - or cookies, candies, or fruits. They can also be used for something like jewelry. I first saw this idea in the May 2009 Family Circle magazine, but this photo comes from Flickr user letthemeatcake1. [Photo licensed under Creative Commons]
For more great ideas, see the other photos in this set, including the cake stand holding "life essentials" and the one holding other small objects.
And even a one-tier cake stand can be used creatively; take a look at this cake stand used as a bathroom countertop shelf.
Judy Evans, who makes some lovely single-tier cake stands - also called plate stands - shows us some other ways to use those stands. They can hold bath products, or serve as a "launch pad" where you keep your wallet, coins, and keys. That's one of Judy's stands above; you can find her plate stands on Etsy and 1000 Markets. Update on Nov. 9. 2011: Judy doesn't seem to be making cake stands any more.
