Cake Domes in Miniature

Cupcakes get the elegant treatment.

While working in Italy, Canadian industrial designer Myriam B. Maguire was inspired by an entirely American phenomenon: the cupcake craze. Teaming up with glassblowers in Italy’s Veneto region, the 28-year-old created a limited series of five jewel-box platters that reinterpret the traditional cake stand, each only big enough to ennoble a single cupcake. Ironic? Perhaps, but paired with these perfectly frosted confections from Sprinkles, the effect is elegant, not silly. From $375; available at Bergdorf Goodman; 212-753-7300.
