It looks like a regular metal cake stand/box with decoupaged wrapping paper on it.

It’s a regular cake stand rented from your baker with wrapping paper around it. Have your baker wrap it as you would anything else that size/shape.

That is beautiful btw!

I think plexiglass is your best bet!

I wouldn’t put anything over the wrapping paper. The baker will have the cake on a foil covered cardboard base, which is what they will use no matter what surface the cake sits on.

My dad bought us two glass blocks (6″x 8″) that we are draping with material; then we are tying 3 1/2 in ribbon around it…sort of like a band.  You could even get larger glass blocks if you need them.

I was talking to my cake baker about making my own cake stand, she said to google “styrafoam cake dummies” and order one online in the right size and cover it with fabric. She said it would be strong enough to hold a cake. They are basically the fake white cakes that you see in bakeries that they use to decorate and place around the bakery. Hope this helps!

A fake cake and a styrofoam stand are two different things. A styrofoam stand will not support the weight of a real cake, and the OP did not mention anything about having a fake cake. Most bakers agree that they actually lose money by charging less for extra labor since they have to decorate two cakes minimum (usually more), not just one.

@Selene221– Maybe there was some miscommunication or I didnt explain clearly. My baker told me to use a “cake dummy” as a cake stand. She said to google it and order one online. She makes cake stands this way, but told me it would be cheaper to do it myself. I wasnt suggesting the OP was having a fake cake, I was just trying to explain what a “cake dummy” was.

You can ask the baker to place the cake on plexi-glass.  Mine will do this. You can buy already made plain wooden boxes at Hobby Lobby.

I would go for something more supportive than styrofoam, just to be safe.  I think plexiglass or just a regular metal cake stand would work great!
