I would like to purchase a petit four/cupcake stand somewhat like this picture. This is for sale at bossmanufacturing.com for $200 and I wanted to know if they are cheaper anywhere else? Thanks!

I've never seen anything like that before but it sure is gorgeous!

I can totally understand not wanting to make the big investment in a piece of cake furniture like this. The upside is, if you do make the splurge, you can then charge a rental fee to your future bookings which eventually will pay for it.

If you do find one for cheap, PLEASE let me know!

I myself use these

I did some Googling for you, and several retailers sell this same stand, the cheapest one I saw was 225.00....so if you can get it direct from the manufacturer for 199.00, I'd jump on it. I even went to my old standby catererswarehouse.com, who charges 393.00 icon_surprised.gif

If you know a handyman or woodworker, I'm sure they can whip something up for you. My husband and FIL are always coming up with something neat for me. Best of all, it's free.

I found one on ebay for a lot less...might want to check there before you spend it. The one I found was acrylic...very pretty. Here is the link. Take a peek.

I hope this helps...I searched every cake supply store that I use and no luck. When I found this one, I thought it was beautiful. Good luck...

Be careful about the Ebay one. It's located in the UK so shipping alone is $80.
