This is a really nice cake stand, but I do have a couple of little issues.
These may not affect everyone and are not major, but will effect the odd person which is why I have chosen to base my review on them.
The first Issue is in the retailers description, no where does it state the hight of the dome so here goes:
at the lowest point the outer edge of the dome it measures approximately 9 cm high. and at the highest point (not measuring the spherical handle) it measures approx 12cm high toward the middle of the dome.
It is very difficult to measure the dome to be exact because of its shape so my measurements are an approximation. for those who have bought it for the Nordicware Bundt cakes
The Heritage Bundt = perfect fit
The Sunflower Bundt = may just fit with a bit of a squeeze on the width but the height is fine even with the overspil
The Cathedral Bundt = just fits in height (if the overspill is cut down to the rim of the pan then cake is turned out)
The Holiday Bundt = slightly too tall for this dome, (You could account for this by leaving out some of the batter)
The Giant Cup Cake = No Chance!
The Original = Perfect fit using 10-12 cup recipe 15 cup recipe doesn't fit snugly (too tall)
The Fleur de Lis = Perfect fit
The Quilted heart pan = this cake pan is very shallow but extremely wide and does not fit on the base of this stand let alone the dome fitting around it.
The Elegant heart = too big for the base
The Kugalhopf = fits the base lovely but far too high for the dome.
The Angel food cake/ Coffee cake pan = fits the base but too high, however with this pan you could leave out some of the batter and it will fit fine. say do an 8cup instead of a 10cup recipe or make cup cakes with the rest.
Can't comment on the rest as I only have these pans
as for the cake base, all of the above fit on it perfectly.
The blue painted writing does look a little tacky... but it isn't really noticeable when the cakes are on the stand!
**When reviewing this stand I hadn't any comparison apart from when I had seen stands on the high st. I stand by my review it is still a very nice stand. I have had this stand for over 2 years now. Although the lid in comparison to my anchor hocking 4in1(for those who want a more pyrex like stand and dome the anchor would probably be better suited) the kitchen craft dome is very thin. but saying that after 2 years it has not a mark or crack on it. I am still very happy with my purchase.
