Tiers of Joy

Cupcakes or wedding cake, pie or fruit tarts a la Mr. Twistie, desserts are only enhanced by setting them down on something pretty. I went hunting around for adorable cake stands and cupcakes stands, and these were my faves:

custom cake stands

rose cake stand

wood cupcake stand
(-any idea where this came from?-)

cupcake stand birds

I think the first and last stands are my favorites among the faves, but I’d love to hear your cupcake stand and cake stand recommendations? There are, of course, the standard white plastic stands and the metal stands where each slot holds a single cupcake and even easy to set up cardboard cupcake stands and stands for wedding pie, but wouldn’t it be nice to have something a bit prettier holding your sweets?

    The stands are beautiful! Cupcakes will look a lot more delicious when placed on these :)

    Wait, you found the elusive pie stands?! Oh, I am so getting married again so we can use them…

    We found lots of pie stands, JRM! You just didn’t like any of ‘em! ;-)

    My favorite cake/cupcake stand is the one I inherited from my grandmother.

    (And apparently, the only photo I’ve taken of it is this one, it’s what the finished cupcakes are standing on.)
