Long gone are the days of piling all of your cupcakes into a pyrex dish and showing up at the party. Cupcake stands now add presentation to your cupcakes and allow the to really be the centerpiece of the party. They come in tons of different shapes and sizes that allow you to get exactly what you need for the event that you’re planning.
Cupcakes have become insanely popular over the last few years for a lot of reasons. My personal favorite is that you know how many to make based on the invitation list. You don’t have to bake off extra cake in order to be safe, you bake just as many cupcakes as you need. Also, cupcakes are much easier to bake and decorate than cakes are. This is a huge plus when you have lots of birthday parties and gatherings that require baking.
Cupcake stands are usually tiered, which creates a large “cake” feel that looks both elegant and professional. They are perfect for birthdays, weddings, or any party. Cleanup is a breeze since there really isn’t much of a mess in the first place! All you have to do to clean up a stand is wipe it down and store it.
Many people will build their own cupcake stands. This is usually done by having different size plates and tiered cake stands separating them. The best part about this is that you can create whatever feel you want simply by changing the plate. In the past this was a great way to save money, but the price of cupcake stands has dropped dramatically due to their popularity. DIY cupcake stands are always an excellent choice.
Having a cupcake stand on hand in your home will be a huge time and money saver. There are so many things you can do with it, and it is certainly nice to be able to throw together an elegant set of fresh baked cupcakes in just a couple of hours.
