STAND HIRE 2024-01-17T15:41:27+00:00


Displaying your cake is an important part of the overall look on your big day & a personal choice.  Most couples will purchase their own stand or use one at their venue.   If you do need help, Cake Rise would be delighted to hire one to you, please see below.

Currently, there are 10 pedestal style stands available for hire.   Hire costs & deposit cost are stated on the photos of each different stand.  An example or two then is shown of the stand being used.

Deposits are refundable only when the stand has been returned to Cake Rise in the same condition it was hired in.   Please only hire stands from Cake Rise when you know you can adhered to the T&C’S below, many thanks.


1. Cost for stand hire + deposit + collection fee (if collection after use is required & if available) are due in advance of Wedding date & will be added to a couple’s final a/c due 4 weeks before a Wedding date if hiring.  Stands hired must be returned by the client to my home in the same condition as hired in, at which point the deposit will be returned.  Therefore, no scratches, cracks, chips or breakages.

2. If the stand is required the day after your Wedding by another couple, you will be informed of this at the time of hiring & required to return the stand to my home by 10am the morning after your Wedding.

Otherwise, stands must be returned to Cake Rise my home at an agreed time on the day after your Wedding – failure to do so will result in a €10 charge deducted from the deposit daily.

3. If the stand is scratched, cracked, chipped, broken, damaged or not returned the deposit cannot be refunded.   Deposits can only be returned when the stand has been returned to Cake Rise in the same condition it was hired in.

4. If a stand has to be collected by Cake Rise after use from a venue a €15/€20 fee will apply for venues within a max 15 mile radius & only if Cake Rise has availability to collect.

Therefore a daily hire fee + deposit + collection fee is due in advance of hire in this case.  Please note this is only offered in exceptional circumstances.   The stand must be returned to Cake Rise by a couple, as it is their responsibility to return it correctly, this in turn allows full clarity & proof of the state of the stand after use, please note this before hiring.

5. In this case where Cake Rise collects within a 15 mile radius, deposits will be returned only when Cake Rise has got it’s stand back with no scratches, cracks, chips or breakages.   If the stand cannot be located by venue staff at the time I go to collect it, the €15/€20 fee to retrieve the stand still applies & no deposit will be returned.   You will be notified of this as soon as Cake Rise knows.  Therefore it is best to return the stand yourselves.

6. Please note, it is not a venues responsibility to look after the stand on your behalf.

Please note the cost of hire + deposit is to cover replacement cost of the stand if lost or broken.
