As long as you can find a way to attach the tree to a sturdy base you should be good to go. My biggest concern would be the tree falling over, but if you attach the tree to a board it shouldn't tip over. Maybe you could run a long bolt up through the bottom of a piece of plywood and make the tree out of a thin plywood. I don't know how to explain it, but have the base of the tree with the bolt incorporated in it...this way you can just screw the tree part down onto the bolt in the base. No tipping this way. You could put as many cupcakes on it as you wanted.
