I'm doing a wedding in about 2 weeks and she wanted cupcakes, so my DH made this for me! The tiers are 20", 18", 16", 14", 12" and the top is an 8". You can use all the tiers or 2! I love it!

WOW! I love it. Lucky you....you have a very handy husband! It looks like PVC pipe....but what are the disks made of?

They are PVC couplers. You can use pipe and cut it to size, but for teh sake of speed, he used couplers on mine! The board is melamine. It's very sturdy!

Where do you buy melamine disks?

He bought it in sheets at either Home Depot or Lowe's and cut out the sizes we needed.

Wow, that looks pretty. Can I borrow your husband for a day?

About how much is the cost to produce this? I'm thinking of making one.

wow - that is very nice!! (although DH now fears I have another project for him! lol!) How many cupcakes do you think it will hold? Would love some instructions for how to do this (if your hubby can do so?)
I'm sure your cupcakes will look fabulous on there!

I want one tooo! My husband's a plumber so surely if I show him this, he could make it for me, as long as you don't mind of course. I think your husband did a fantastic job.
You could wrap the pillars in co-ordinating paper to match the wedding theme.

You should go into the cupcake stand business, too!

Excellent job and it looks so sturdy! Aren't DH's just wonderful for this kinda stuff? My DH converted an old marble plant stand into a cake stand that can also be used as a turntable. No way I coulda done that without him!

And thanks for sharing the info...I may need to get my DH to make me one of these too hehe icon_smile.gif

I put liners on just to get some idea. I got about 92 on all the tiers. You might be able to fit more. I didn't cram them on there.

I'll be customer #3! What if you just made an e-book to show people how to make them? Then you don't have to buy the materials and you can let them sell themselves? Just a thought icon_wink.gif Let me know if/when you list them. I'm IN! thumbs_up.gif
