Today I want to take a look at Sweet Server Cupcake Stands. These are styrofoam cupcake stands that carry a very low price, when compared to other materials. I’ve used these before, and have had a very mixed experience with them. For the price it’s easy to justify getting what you pay for, but there are some other stands that cost a little bit more and will get a lot more use out of them! In this post I want try and give an unbiased review so you can make the decision for yourself. It will be hard to stay unbiased since I’ve actually used these, buy I’ll try to keep it fair!
What’s Good With The Sweet Server Cupcake Stand?
The best thing about the Sweet Server Cupcake Stand is its low price. You can usually pick one of these up for between $10 and $15. There are a couple of retailers that sell them in packs of three, which would be a good choice for larger events. Every time I’ve seen the packs of them, they usually aren’t marked down as a bulk price, so be sure to add it up and see if it’s cheaper to get them individually before making a purchase.
Since these cupcake stands are made from styrofoam they are incredibly lightweight. If you’re stuck moving a lot of stuff for your event, this can be extremely helpful. The problem is that once they aren’t full of cupcakes, they are prone to blowing over in the wind. I don’t recommend this cupcakes stand for outdoor use!
The size of the Sweet Server stand is good as well. It holds around 36 cupcakes, which works great for many events. I like the fact that it doesn’t have an odd size (who bakes 29 cupcakes?!).
What Needs Work With The Sweet Server Cupcake Stand?
This is where it’s going to be hard to stay fair!
The Sweet Server stand is a good choice if you’re not expecting much. Since it’s made from styrofoam it breaks easily. It comes in the box as a bunch of small parts that have to be pushed together, and they fit together very tightly. The tight fit is normally a good thing, but it’s a bit flimsy and can break when putting it together. Luckily, it’s not hard to tape the pieces back together, but it’s still a pain in the butt!
I also don’t see how people are going to reuse this very well. Ours broke when we took it apart after we had finished, so it ended up getting tossed since we didn’t want to have to repair it. If you plan on getting multiple uses out of this cupcake stand, be very gentle when assembling and disassembling!
All in all, this isn’t the worst cupcake stand for your dollars. I prefer something that will last a lot longer, but for ten bucks you get what you pay for. This is the perfect cupcake stand for those that want something that’s as cheap as possible, and have no plans on reusing it.
We have this for sale from Amazon on the home page, where you can also check out lots of other styles of cupcake stands!
