Ok, so I finally took the plunge and bought a cupcake tower icon_lol.gif Now I have a question. When letting someone use the tower for an event (wedding, etc.) do you charge a rental fee or just require a deposit and when it's returned then they get their deposit back? I'm sorta split on which direction I would like to go on this one, so any feedback is appreciated! I can't wait to get the tower and try it out, yay! icon_biggrin.gif

Both. We charge 1/3 of the replacement value (cost + shipping) as a rental fee, plus the full replacement value as a refundable deposit.

Out of curiosity, which cupcake tower did you buy? I've been hunting for a good one, but don't know anything about the ones I've found.

I charge both a rental and a deposit. the rental is for the use. the deposit is to cover any damage that might occur.

I bought "The Cupcake Tower". I ended up buying the circle bundle and with shipping it was a total of $212.00. You get three different colored ribbons with it and can have 4 different size options since you get two smaller bases. Their website is: http://www.thecupcaketower.com/ Good luck!

OoOo, that looks pretty neat. icon_smile.gif Although I'd be more inclined to buy the plain circular boards and drill my own cakepop holes. LOL

I do both a rental and a deposit on my 2 towers. $25 rental and $250 deposit.
