I am over the metal swirl Wilton cupcake stand!  I'm looking into an acrylic one.  I've found many, but prices range from $20 for a three tier to $200 for a 6 tier.  I am willing to spend a little money for a good sturdy one that can go from 3-6 tiers if posible.  Any suggestions before I buy would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

I love to make cake stands--just an idea to throw in the hat--you can purchase acrylic at the big box hardware stores and elsewhere I'm sure. It's a b-i-t-c-h to cut but you could build one that could be any size you want--and it could get re-arranged from small to large too.


If memory serves, cutting the acrylic was doable--drilling holes in it was %&*$%# you dont' wanna know.


In fact I had some acrylic pieces made once for shelving for my store. I just looked in the yellow pages till I found someone in my area to do custom acrylic work. I'd so do that if it was me.


Have a good time on your quest!!!

Why only acrylic stands. You can also try cardboard stands. They come at much reasonable prices than the acrylic ones and they are also unbreakable.

If you are having problems cutting acrylic just check with your local glass shop and they should be able to assist you.
