I am planning on building a cupcake stand for my brothers finance's baby shower. its going to be 6 tiers and the top tier is going to have a small cake. What is the best material to build it out of. i want it to look really nice. thank you very much
i am planning to make a cupcake stand myself as well. i have a upcoming event on 28, when is the baby shower? i am going to make it, and then i can let u know. i think i am going to try using, the special card board which architects use, its very strong and i think i am going to make it 5-6 tiers as well. lets see how that goes
how many cupcakes does it need to hold?
i am going to be making 200... what r u planning? and what materials have considered?
anytime i need to display more than 5 dozen or so, i prefer to go with a wood stand, because those suckers get heavy. anything less than that, i just use 1/2" thick foamcore board to make my stands, which you can get from any craft store.
make sure you cost out all of your materials ahead of time, it may be less expensive to buy one. if you don't have your heart set on a particular style, maybe check out thecupcaketower dot com? they make nice sturdy stands.
Most DIY towers I've seen are made from foam-board or by connecting various serving trays together. I think it would be very time consuming to cut one yourself. I've also seen some that are constructed of various sized boxes stacked together.
Also check out www.penguincupcaketowers.com. They are more sturdy than the cardboard stands and they don't cost too much more.
