Best Cupcake Tier Designs

Lots of us love cupcakes and if you need to put them on show you need good cupcake stands. The great thing about cupcakes is that they are so easy to make and are fun to decorate. And because they are individual its great to get the children involved in making. But once that is done and you want to put them on show at the birthday party, wedding or other event you really need good cupcake tree or a good cupcake holder to show them off at their best.

This is the Imperial Stainless Steel Cupcake and Dessert Stand For 23 Cupcakes.

Also if you are building cupcake tiers, then you need your cupcake tier stand to be very stable. The worst thing is to go to all the effort of making wonderful cupcakes and then see them all tumble off a poorly made cupcake stand. Here we will show some quality cupcake holders that are available to buy an also show some pictures of some great designs that are online to see what's possible.

DIY Tiered Cupcakes

Making your own tiered cupcake stand can actually be fairly simple. The main things that you need are some flat surfaces to act as the tiers and something to act as the central supports between the tiers. And then to hold it all together all you need then is some strong glue to give a tight bond.

For the flat surfaces you can plates, bowls or a combination of both. Or you can also use cardboard or similar materials and then cover it with whatever you like or even paint it or decorate it in other ways and attach ribbons.

      I never thought about the different ways to display cupcakes. Mostly I just eat them.
