I was wondering if anyone tried the new 300 cupcake towers by Isabella online? If they are worth buying and if there is really room for ribboning on the edges?? If so great! and I'll order, but if not, what is your suggestion on where to buy/brand? Thanks!

I took a quick look at the website and it's cardboard. Wouldn't you be nervous stacking that many cupcakes on cardboard?

Last year my sister's boss asked her to make 300 cupcakes for her son's wedding reception. The cupcake towers she used were cardboard also. The one thing she didn't do is stack the cupcake cardboard stands on top of each other. The venue had the table set up for the cupcakes and she asked for shaped mirrors to display the cupcakes on. I have a picture of the display:

Otherwise, the stands seemed sturdy and strong enough to accommodate all the cupcakes had we stacked them, which was the original plan. Hope this Helps.

I bought a cardboard tower from cupcaketree.com for 300 cupcakes and it worked fine. I used spray glue and covered it with a coated wrapping paper.

Cardboard cupcake stand is really cool, actually it is more fun rather than the normal cake that we used to. Aside from cupcake stand the cupcake itself will add more attraction if it has a beautiful decoration.

Bandcbakes: it held all the cupcakes well right? You can reuse this stand too? Do you have an example of what you did? Just curious...I think I'm going to go with this after looking at their site. Thanks everyone for your amazing advices..Love them!

I don't have a pic of the 300 stand but there is a pic of one of the smaller stands that I bought from cupcaketree on my website. Go to justcakethat.com and look under wedding cakes. Sharon

I custom make cupcake/cake stands that have changeable dresses for any occasion. They are very light wood but very sturdy! They are beautiful!!! I currently have 4 and 5 tiers in stock but can make any size you desire. my website is under construction but there are pictures. I also have a facebook page as well. All of my cake stands are convertible to any size tier or party (example: If you needed a 8 tier for a wedding and now you only need a 3 tier for a birthday party, you would simply leave out the other tiers) We are Standing Ovations! These are great wedding gifts as they last and are reusable, what a great way to use something you bought for your wedding, over and over and over again! standingovations.co or facebook, Standing Ovations and email at chellie@standingovationsco.com icon_smile.gif We hope you enjoy!
