My hubby is going to build me a cupcake stand for a wedding. 6" cutting cake to go on top and 110 cupcakes. The top tier will start at 8"/

Any suggestions on how many tiers? I was thinking of increments of 4" . . . ie 8, 12, 16, 20, 24. Would these hold enough?

What looks better - 4", 5" or 6" between tiers?

Thanks for your help!

My hubby is building it out of plywood with a 4x4 as the middle pillar/support and it will be painted black.

I don't actually know the answer to your question - I've ordered an acrylic stand which is coming at the beginning of the week, so I can let you know how that looks then....

but I did want to say, how cool is it that your husband is making the stand? Looking forward to seeing pictures when its done. icon_smile.gif
