It isn't very big, on the other hand, it isn't expensive.

well... 16" tall would fit a 2 or maybe 3 tier.... I think I'm gonna get it and see! My pics all look sloppy and I've been looking for a solution...

You certainly can't beat the price. Even if you can't fit your cake in the box, the dual lights and tripod are nice to have!

You can actually make something very similar with a card board box and tracing paper. Thats what my hubby did for my cakes. I just need him to make a bigger one for my larger cakes.

I used to order from LTD all the time. I'm always amazed at how inexpensive their stuff is. Let us know how it works out.

i just googled it to see if i could find anything bigger, and didn't... BUT found that this is a really good deal. all of the others were priced at $56-$80!

Would you be able to assemble a 3 tier cake to picture, and then move? I think this is GREAT if you can! This is what I do: I have an extra curtain panel which is beige & is normally a great background (if not, I use my current burgundy curtain). I place it over my table like a tablecloth & have my husband hold the other side up. The cake faces my sliding glass door, and natural sunlight is the best lighting (per my photographer friend)... so I picture as much as possible during the day & with the curtain. I think you can also purchase a lightbulb which is supposed to be the same quality as sunlight. And, if my husband isn't available, I rig something up (secure enough not to ruin my cake!)... Most of my wedding cakes are pictured on-site though, and it's SO unfortunate that most venue's don't think of the background for cake pictures! Please reply with how you like this though, I'm sure it would work GREAT for my birthday & other orders!

I was just looking at these at my local Wal-mart. I dont remember the price but I believe it was cheaper than this one.

it comes in a case... I would assume it's portable enough to take with you if absolutely necessary...

I just use the 3 panel display board with the same color of posterboard underneath, and use my overhead lights.
