I am looking for a cup cake stand for my wedding in January 2012. I have been looking around but couldnt find any. I will be doing cup cake as my wedding cake as the cost of wedding cakes are extremely expensive.

  1. Are you interested in renting or buying? Renting will be a lot cheaper. Here's an old thread, but the recommendations still hold true:

    And here's another place that rents:

    The Cupcake Shoppe also rents their stands:

      Buying...went to different website but unsuccesful :-(

      1. re: jing

        Why don't you call Eini and Co. and see if you can buy a stand? Or ask them where they get theirs? Ditto for Cupcake Shoppe or really any cupcake or wedding cake shop that has stands.

        I'd call the Wedding Cake Shop, too.

            Thanks.

            I will try to call them.

              Aha, here you go. Good ol' Golda's has them. And they are a good price, too.

                Thanks. I will surely look into it. Initially we wanted a wedding cake but we will only be having 40 people for the wedding. Looking for a 2-tired small inexpensive wedding cake but i guess it doesnt exist anymore..heheheh

                1. re: jing

                  What's your definition of inexpensive? There are lots of places that will make a small wedding cake for you. My choice would be to talk to Flaky Tart. They make beautiful and delicious cakes. A 6" cake there is about $40 and serves 8 - 10, so I would guess that a cake the size you need would run maybe $200? And by the time you buy a cupcake stand and the number of cupcakes you need, you're probably looking at close to $200 anyway.

      2. I thought I saw one for sale at Crate & Barrel a few months ago.

        1. Although the Golda's Kitchen one looks perfect.

          1. Have you tried Homesense? I've seen them there.

              Homesense..really? I will try to check it out this afternoon..is it 2 tiered?

            2. I was given a 3 tiered, mirrored cupcake stand that was purchased at Bowrings. The size would be appropriate for your plans. I believe it was purchased at one of their outlet stores so you may want to give them a call.

                cool..thanks for all the inputs...

                1. re: jing

                  I've seen cupcakes stands at Caynes (Yonge & Doncaster), Michaels, and Walmart.
                  Michaels has the 23 cupcake stand for sure that i've seen, but if you're looking for a 38 cupcake stand and can't find it anywhere you can prob order off of this site.
