How to Choose the Best Tiered Cupacke Stand

by Digby_Adams

Easily make a beautiful centerpiece for your buffet table or entice buyers at your bake sale. A cupcake holder is an important part of your cupcake supplies.

A large cupcake stand is perfect for a bake sale. People can see the cupcakes from a long distance and their mouths start watering. I have mini cupcakes made from the same batter with just a touch of frosting for samples so that they can taste how wonderful the big ones taste. With the weak economy, community bake sales are very competitive these days and you have to put your best sales hat on to make money for your group.

This works really well if you've themed some of your cupcakes. For example the floral cupcakes below are perfect for a Garden Club bake sale.

The first thing you need to consider when you're picking out your cupcake holder stand is how many cupcakes will you need to display at one time. If you're at a bake sale you can just keep adding them to your tiered cupcake stand. If you're hosting the big family reunion, who has the time. You'll probably want to set up your cupcake tree and forget about it.

You also need to think about the size of your cupcakes. If you're cupcake designs are piled high with frosting and decorations then you'll need lots of room between layers. Perhaps the top tier for the fanciest of cupcakes with the most frosting.

I love the scalloped edges of the tiered cupcake stand on the bottom. It provides an individual showcase for each cupcake. The decoration on top is an addition that you'll find at any craft supply store. There's actually a small cake on the top layer surrounded by cupcakes.

People can spend a lot of time picking out their cupcake at a bake sale or even a party. I think the revolving cupcake stand are a lot of fun. At a bake sale they let everyone see all the cakes without touching the product. 

Variety of Tiered Cupcake Stands

When a group of us are baking cupcakes for a charity event or one of us is getting ready for a big party, we all klnow who has what kind of tiered cupcake holders and stands. It's not uncommon for a woman to volunteer a cupcake tower for a friend to use. It's also common for friends to show up and help decorate the cupcakes. Similar to the quilting bees that used to take place in rural communities many years ago. It's a chance for the women to share work and enjoy each others company and of course the neighborhood news.
