hello all! i'm wanting to purchase a cupcake tower to use for weddings and other events but i'm really not sure which to get. if anyone has one they really enjoy, what is it?

there's a couple on the cakes by sam website. i like both but which color would be better suited to a variety of weddings/events? or should i go with something home-made or acrylic??

yes, thank you. i have seen that before but i tend to like ones that are a bit smaller and compact. like the look of the ones from pinkcakebox.com.

They sell them on that website. And they seem less expensive than the 2 you linked to.

Here is a stand I have seen often in the galleries.

Expensive, but looks nicer than acrylic in my humble opinion. It is metal and can be disassembled for storage. Wood is nice but you have to make your own.

I just ordered one from another CC'rs neighbor. If you look at cupcakemkr's photos, there is a picture of it. Let me know if you want the contact info.
My DH made one of Antonia74's stands but it is so heavy when you're transporting it, I have a few acrylic stands and love them.

Hi ended up purchasing one of these. I think I will try a different kind for the next one I buy. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for your input everyone!

these are smaller than the ones you liked to in the OP, those square ones are great and they hold 100, thats awesome.

Recently I have been looking into cupcake stands and I found the ones below. Some don't say how many they hold but they do tell you the tier sizes so you could easily figure it out. any way, they have the best prices I have found.

I use the Wilton Tall Tier. Works fine. Inexpensive. Especially if you have a Michael's 50% off coupon!

If you really like the ones by pink cake box, as I do, you could find someone to make it. I called Mr Handyman services and they made me one exactly like it for the same cost.
