Rated 2 out of 5 by wenden too tall
it looks nice, but so tall that its only really useful if you have a huge kitchen and/or frequently bake very TALL cakes. if it were 2/3 the size it might be useful

This cake dome will hold an INCREDIBLY tall 3-layer frosted cake! It's a nice thick glass dome and was VERY well packaged. I can't wait to make a homemade mile-high fresh coconut cake to put on display under this cake dome!!

My wife has been wanting a cake cover for her 3 layer chocolate cakes. I bought it for a surprise and she loves it. It sits well on several of her cake plates, flat and short rise. Can't wait for the next chocolate cake. Yummy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by hppymoma dissapointed
I was very excited to order this cake dome as it looked beautiful in the photo, but was very disappointed in its appearance when it arrived. What looked to be a sparkly clear dome in the photos arrived as a dull cloudy glass dome with several imperfections in the glass. I would actually describe its appearance as 'dirty'. While one may expect a few glass bubbles which would add to the charm in blown glass this was not the case with this dome as it had several long dents and misshapen bubbles that seem to go almost all the way through the glass itself! It could never be used to cover a cake as its appearance would surely make any cake look unappetizing, and I have instead used it to cover a potted plant, sadly, it even looks bad in this role. With its dents and large fragile bubble holes I don't expect it to last long, which will be no great loss. I do regret the amount of money I spent for such a poor product. Live and learn!

I have admired this in the catalogs I receive, and finally decided it is a must have! This dome is tall enough for a FOUR layer cake. I plan on displaying other 'treasures' in it when not being used for my favorite Italian Cream Cake. As heavy as this is, it still has a delicate appearance.

I love my new three-layer cake dome! It is the only one I've found that will fit over my "signature," three-layer Italian cream cake, and it's wonderful to be able to show off the cake and keep it fresh. The glass is thick and sturdy, so I'm not worried about chipping it. So glad Ballard had this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gacookbook Beautiful cake cover.
Had been searching for a high dome cake cover for several years since the one to my set broke. I was never able to find one at a reasonable price. This one is heavy, good quality and was on sale. It is higher than my previous one, but that is a good thing as it will fit any height cake with no problem. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluepeewee Just as Pictured
I make a lot of three layer cakes and this cover allows them to show and become part of my kitchen's decor. Right now, I just put a bunch of mini pumpkins on my cake plate with the cover and it looks fabulous while waiting for the next fall cake. The item was extremely well packed too. I'm very pleased, as usual, with this Ballard product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tangerine12 Nice heavy glass
It's really more of a two layer cake dome, to get three layers would be a stretch or very small layers. However, it is very sturdy, nice glass and looks very nice on my cake pedestal.

This shipped fast and is a lot sturdier than I thought it would be. Usually the bigger these things get, the thinner the glass. Very sturdy and will fit over a large plate. We will use as a cake dome and probably for Halloween décor. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by echomom this product is perfect
I read the reviews that came prior and was only concerned that one person said hers was fragile and of inferior quality. I went ahead and made my purchase any way because the size fit my needs perfectly and I must say I am so happy I did. The glass is strong, the handle safe and the height will not squash my decorations when I make my kids birthday cakes. The packaging was so secure and safe they really took great care in getting it to me on time and in one piece.

I've made pies in the past I wanted to leave out displayed on my counter but covered. The circumference of this dome fits over a nice pie dish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bakerygirl2014 Stunning display piece!
I was skeptical after reading some of the reviews to order, but was so pleased when I received it, the packaging was fantastic and so well done that the dome made it to my home without a scratch. I actually love that it isn't super heavy, it makes it so easy to lift off of cakes. I paired it with an extra large and tall jadeite cake stand and it is stunning together, an amazing statement piece in my kitchen, filled with oversized chocolate chip cookies, it looks like a gourmet bakery. I couldn't be happier with it, definitely recommend ordering!

I was looking for a dome for my large decorated cakes that would not crush my decorations. This is it. It will accommodate a tall cake with icing decorations. Beautiful glass, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sims Very pleased with the quality of the product
this was purchased for my wife, who is an avid baker. Was nervous to what quality the product would be. The products exceeded my expectations and for such a delicate product both arrived without a chip, crack or blemish. You should be commended for product quality, excellent shipping methods and product that exceeds the catalog/online representation of same.

Loved the large cake plate so much I ordered the medium and small versions. Timeless, classic elegance that will never go out of style. So many uses that I anticipate it will stay on display.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UpEarly Very Tall!
The cake dome is very tall and will accommodate several layers. It is great for tall cakes. You will not find a taller dome! It looks incredible over a 5 layer cake, atop the large marble cake stand. The downside: the glass is a little thin, making the dome rather delicate and finding a place to store such a tall, delicate glass dome is difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mallock Very large cake dome!
I've been in search of a cake dome that would accommodate a 3 layer cake and finally found this one. It is very large, and I would bet that it could hold 7 layers comfortably! I would have preferred to have something that won't dwarf my cakes but I can't seem to find a happy medium between this and a typical 1-2 layer cake dome. On the positive side, the simple styling makes for a versatile piece that goes well with all my cake plates (glass, silver and fine china) and I was able to snag it on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Epicuriancollector A southern living necessity if you want to serve that great cake in classic southern style!
Love the tall dome which allows for a multi-layered cake to be displayed. Visualize a coconut layer cake or a black walnut cake with caramel icing. Can be used with a cake stand or platform. Also great for serving rounds or wedges of cheese. When not in use as a cake dome can be used as a cloche over plants or decorative objects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toppie The Cake Dome is both functional and Beautiful.
I'm very, very pleased with my purchase. The size is perfect for an over sized cake as well as a smaller cake. The dome looks beautiful on my oak side board.
The care in packing and shipping was so appreciated.
I plan on making additional purchases in the near future.
