I have a client that wants to purchase one of the cardboard cupcake stands form c u p c a k e t r e e .com Has anybody used one of these, and if so, what did you think of it?

I have only made cupcake stads, and had one bride rent one. I really don't have the time to make any right now, and she doesn't want to rent. I don't want to put the money into purchasing one when I don't do that many cupcake weddings.

Thanks for the help

My feelings - why pay 39.95 for a cardboard one when you can buy a durable plastic one for 47.95 - 79.95 that would last a whole lot longer than cardboard. but - you don't say how many cupcakes the stand needs to hold..... I recently purchased a plastic one that holds up to 100 cupcakes and it is made so that you can use all the tiers or only some of them. I rationalized the purchase by using it for more than just weddings and cupcakes - it works great for finger sandwiches, mini desserts, and things like that.....
I've been able to rent the stand out 3 times already and it's already paid for itself plus I do ask for a deposit just in case it comes back broken and then between the rental price and the deposit - I could buy a new one at no cost to me......
But that's me..... thumbs_up.gif

just a thought, Wilton has a cake stand that you could use as a cupcake holder and you can buy extra feet so you can change out the size for the bottom, If you invest in this you can use it on cakes and cupcakes,
