Quicksilver Cake Stands
Beautiful Stand, BUT BASE BROKE OFF
I bought this cake stand for my wedding in July and was thrilled to find a mercury glass stand. Since then I have used the stand twice for parties I have thrown. I hand washed it each time, but after using it the third time the base just came right off, simply detached from the top. For almost $70 I believe a stand should last a lot longer than three uses. Beautiful, but poorly made, and not worth the price if it can only be used a few times.

I'm not sure as to why the previous reviewer had a bad experience, I recieved mine a few months ago for my 3.1.14 wedding. I ordered the large cake stand. I've not had any problems with it breaking, I have handled it a bit to photograph for my wedding blog. It is a beautiful stand and I can't wait to see how it will look once my cake is on it! I will update my review with photos from my wedding and issues, if any.

Not Worth It
I purchased four of these cake stands in different sizes the week before my wedding as I was in a panache, but was very disappointed when they arrived. Two of them broke while being delivered (bases broke off) and they were packaged extremely well, so I found this to be surprising. I had to hot glue them back on. Then while on route to the wedding another one's base broke off and this one had to be hot glued as well.
After speaking to my baker about the mishap she recommended that I shouldn't use them for fear that they would break again and my cakes would topple over!
So all in all I purchased these expensive cake stands had then brake, fixed them and then couldn't even use them :(
Definitely don't recommend purchasing them they are beautiful but just poorly made. The bases need to be made much sturdier.
