Cupcake stands are a great devise used to display your fab designs. They have many practical funtions including, saving table /counter space, they look professional and at the moment they are very popular. Cupcake stands can be bought or hired. A great place to buy cupcake stands in various sizes and designs is the Cake Decorating Company. The cake decorating comapny sell a range of stands made from vaious materials, including persepex which is very practcal and is often most used for events such as christenings and weddings.
Just look at this amazing stand of rainbow colored cupcakes…
An idea is to display each tier by flavours, colours or themes, so that it is eye catching to the customer.
Construct the display and make sure it is sturdy before placing the cakes on to avoid terrible accidents. Can you imagine buying 100 cupcakes and the stand collapses. ;-(
While looking for some different designs i found these by the wedding girl. I really like the large class stand as it really does make a great feature for all them cupcakes.
The indivdual stands are great for parties, and could be used as place markers on tables at small weddings by adding the guest name.
How many cupcakes will a stand hold?
Well each stand is different, it depends on the size of the cupcakes too.
The store or company will have given instructions on roughly how many cupcakes each stand will hold, if you have hired it along with some of their cakes.
Stands for personal use
If you are wanting a cupcake stand to use at home for your work bench or for small parties i would suggest one like this, that folds away easiley when not in use. The benefit of a smaller one is that they are usually cheaper and easy to transport.
This black design is described by the cake decorating company as:
“3 tier gold foil cupcake stand with a base tier measures 36cm diameter, middle tier measures 31cm and the top tier measures 21cm diameter”.
