This is going to turn into a bit of a text based flow chart, so feel free to jump to where you need to go!
Are You Planning On Reusing Your 3 Tier Cupcake Stand?
This is something that most people don’t think about when shopping for cupcake stands. Wire stands look great, but when they are designed to hold a specific number of cupcakes you either have to buy a stand in a different size next time, or host parties that are always the same size!
Stands with flat tiers are much more versatile than those with wires. With these you are able to fit any number of cupcakes, and if you don’t have enough to fill each tier you can add decorations in between (toys, flowers, etc.). If you are planning on using your cupcake stand again, get one that has flat tiers! Why not go for metal cupcake stand, they come in beautiful designs, 3 tier galvanized stand looks beautiful with cupcakes.
Planning A Big Party?
The beauty of a three tier cupcake stand is that they are small enough to host regular size parties, yet affordable enough that you can buy multiple for large gigs. Some of the larger 3 tier cupcake towers can hold upwards of a hundred cupcakes, but most people will just go with a few smaller ones.
While cupcake stands rarely tip over, it’s better to deal with one of your smaller stands falling than all of your cupcakes on one large stand! Each occasion is different, but if it were up to me I would always choose a handful of smaller stands. A 4 tier cupcake stand is also fairly common if you’re looking for something in between.
Have A Cake As Well?
The combination of cake and cupcakes is very popular for weddings. The bride and groom get the cake, while all of the guests eat the cupcakes. There are lots of cupcake stands designed just for this purpose, but they are usually four tiered. The first three tiers are designed to hold the cupcakes, and the cake goes on the top.
Want To Spend As Little Money As Possible?
If you’re on a tight budget you have a few options. The cheapest way is to find a stand at a thrift store or garage sale. Another choices is to use a cardboard 3 tier cupcake stand. I’m not the biggest fan of cardboard cupcake stands since they can’t be reused very well, but some people do love them. They are much cheaper and easier to transport than plastic, metal, glass, or wire.
