The article would be much better if you listed where to get the supplies online. Just my two cents!

How many tiers should I do?? Seeing the cost of some stands, I think it’s cheaper to make one!

I have made a few cupcake stands of my own. I think the four layer size would be better for the amount of cupcakes that you would like to make.

Can you tell me where you purchased your’s?

Thank you,

I think I’ll be making one of these for my best friend’s bridal shower coming up. I’m looking at making around 30 cupcakes for the event and I read that your 5-tier stand in the tutorial has room for 50. So do you think 3 tiers would be enough for the 30 cupcakes? or should I do 4?

Thank you so much!

I would make sure that once assembled the cake stand will not be moved around with.

Global sugar art.com have them. Some do sell 4″ high dummies so then you would only need 1 per tier. If they are only 2″ then you need two per tier and glue them together.

Hobby lobby? and is dummies the actual name for them? Just want to make sure when I ask for them. and its 2 dummies for each size correct(totalling 4 I would need)? Unless I am able to find the bigger size, then only 1 is needed for each size (totalling 2 I would need only)

I would not recommend to make one that holds 150 and don’t know what sizes to use then. I would recommend to make 3 cake stands.

You can make single tiers fro the rest of the cupcakes or place them around the cake stand on the table.

I think that it will work. You may need to support the top tier when cutting the cake.
