I charged $25 for a 6 tier stand rental. I took a $300 deposit on the stand thinking that was reasonable because it cost me that much to buy it. Now I find out that some bakers charge waaay more for the rental alone - up to $150.

Just looking for your input so I can see if there's an average price out there. Thanks!!!

My stand is 7 tiers if i rent the whole thing I ask for $50, & less as the tiers go down but I paid $70 for my stand
So Id think the more expensive/fancy the stand is the higher the rent goes

Where did you get a 7 tier stand for $70? I am curious. Right now I am using different size cake stands for mine. I am thinking of going through cupcaketree.com to get some.

Well I am new to this so I am not sure if it is a good price. I charge a $50 refundable fee. I am thinking of going through cupcaketree.com and charging people the cost of the stand and then a set up fee. This way I don't have to worry about getting anything back. I am an in home bakery and live in the middle of no where so this would make it easier on the customer trying to get it back to me. They can just toss it when it is done.
