Yesterday I priced the stands made from cake dummies. The 24 and 30 inch sizes did not make the stand a bargain. I have the Cupcake Tree cupcake stand and I am looking at purchasing one of the 7 tier acrylic or wooden ones from ebay. Since they will be rentals, any feedback on what brides want would be appreciated.

FromScratchSF, I really like your stand. It looks like you used the same can and it came off more balanced. What size were your cans?

I hit the mercado latino and bought whatever random cans I though would work for the least amount of money. So, from the bottom up, the "feet" cans were little cans of green chilies. Then large enchalada sauce on 16" square, then regular sized refried beans the rest of the way up. I probably would have used a thinner can (tomato paste) holding the top tier if there were only going to be cupcakes, but with the cake I needed something more sturdy. I also use spray adhesive so my wrapping paper lifts really east for me to change the paper out.
