In 2009, Sarah’s Stands - a Cake Stand Company was started by Sarah Oetting after she could not find a cake stand for her wedding. Frustrated with her lack of choices, she decided to design her own line of cake stands. She made a list of all the elements she wanted in a cake stand; a classic pedestal shape, lots of color options, a range of larger sizes, a completely flat top plate and a material strong enough to hold the weight of tiered cakes. She combined these elements into what she considers “the perfect cake stand.” Since it was founded, the company has grown to include her husband, Aaron Oetting, and, most recently, their business partner, Derek Sweet. As a company, they hope that Sarah’s Stands becomes a staple of the wedding industry by offering couples exactly what they are looking for in a cake stand.
