It would be nice to have a clear glass dome to go over my largest cake pedestal. Specifically, I’m looking for a dome that is about 14” diameter, about 8” high. I’ve looked on the websites of Kitchen Krafts (alas, Sweet Celebrations is out of business). I’ve looked on Amazon, Williams-Sonoma, and I’ve done a generic google search. Most of my search results are for both cake pedestals and domes that accommodate a 9- or 10-inch cake that is no more than 4 inches high.

Anybody know where I could get bigger domes? I’d even be willing to consider acrylic, but I prefer glass, since it doesn’t scratch as easily.

Thank you for your suggestions, everybody. Freshkid, I live about 20 minutes from Surfas. I looked on their website and saw nothing, but I see from your information that the website and brick-and-mortar location may not be exactly the same. So, I will go there and check it out for myself. I don’t need much of an excuse to go to Surfas—one of my favorite stores in the world!

This query reminds me of an early cake experience I had as a fairly new bride… I baked a cake to serve to friends we were having over for lunch after church one Sunday.  Wanting to make the cake the center of attention, I carefully covered it with a glass dome and placed it on display under a ceiling light.  When we arrived home several hours later, all the frosting was melted and sliding off the cake.  This was before I got my first KitchenAid so I know I didn’t decorate that cake with any of Rose’s buttercreams, but I just thought I’d share this little tidbit just in case you were ever tempted to do the same.
