I am in the process of ordering a cupcake tower/cake pop tower. I have decided on a 5 tier round tower. My question is, should I go with a tower that has a 5" clearance between levels or 6.5" clearance? This is for personal use and will be used for a variety of occasions. I'm new to this and just don't know which would be better.

Thanks for your help,

Vonda

I think you would be fine with the 5" clearance unless you plan on having really tall decorations on top of the cupcakes. I think most cupcakes are about 2" high, plus about 2" frosting, so you would have an inch of clearance above that.

Thank you for the advice. Would this be a good height for the cake balls also?

Thanks again,
