Hi all!
I'm making 200 cupcakes, plus a 6-inch cake for cutting for a wedding on Friday.
Anyone willing to offer ideas on how I can display them all? I'm so very short on time, I think it's too late to order stands from anywhere, but I'd like it to look nicer than just covering the cake table. I have a couple of glass cake plates, but I think with 200 cupcakes, I'm going to need height! I'm thinking of somehow stacking cake rounds with dummies.... but not sure how stable that would be.
Thanks in advance!

That's the cupcake stand that I was going to suggest as well. You'll be able to use it over and over.

I am making a version of these for a birthday party this weekend. I think it depends on how formal your wedding is, but I just bought the boxes and scrapbook paper today @ Joann Fabrics with my Coupon Commotion ad and it ended up being fairly inexpensive and very cute. Not finished yet though.
