How I wish I had discovered this cupcake display stand back when I was shlepping goodies to school on a regular basis! This is something you can actually use for more than just your kids parties.
Cupcakes have many advantages over cakes for kids parties, both at home and at school, not the least being the ability to make a gorgeous display of your creative handiwork with a stand like this one from Wilton. In fact, owning this stand may inspire you to make your cupcakes into little works of art. And as I showed you last week in my post about animal face cupcakes, it’s just not that hard to do.
Even just different colors of icing and different sprinkle type decorations on your cupcakes can have a festive visual effect when well displayed by your cupcake stand. Use the heavier metallic type paper cupcake cups and fill them with strawberries or nuts or whatever for grown-up parties.
The stand pictured here holds 24 cupcakes, probably more than the number of kids at your childrens party but I’d recommend this one over the 13 cupcake stand as it will be more useful for all those school food gigs you’ll do and for any grown-up parties you have. The price difference is nominal. Most cake mixes make about 24 cupcakes anyways, so just fill it up and let the kids have more than one each.
Compared to all the throw-aways you could spend $20 on, this stand will make your cupcake displays very inviting for years to come.
