Cups and Cakes Spinal Tap

Cake Plate, Take One

The Post 86 Fiesta line has had two official pieces produced as cake plates. HLC originally created a lovely plate with a distinctive art deco design that had tabs on opposite ends. The plate measures 12 inches across at the tabs. It frequently referred to and sold as a "cake plate" however, guess what? That's not it's name.

It's called a round serving tray and was produced into 2001.

Cake Plate, Take Two

The successful 15 inch Fiesta Pizza Tray inspired the company to make a smaller version that could be used for cakes and cookies. At 12 inches the 12 " Pizza Tray is popularly used as a cake plate. In fact, HLC combined this plate with a swell looking ceremic cake server into a box and made it a Macy's exclusive. Look for these selling on Macy's website.

Otherwise, the 12 " Pizza Tray sold by itself works great. We've photographed many of our cake recipes on the plate, including brown sugar pound cake and classic 7 UP cake.

The Post86 Round Serving Tray is item number 468.

The Post86 Small Pizza Tray (12") is item number 575.

Collectors and sellers sell these trays / cake plates online every day. Check here for the current list of auctions and Buy It Now specials.

HLC has produced these in all of the post-86 colors, except Sapphire. They are typically carried in stock at the department stores, and on Macys.com.
