How To ---- Antonia74's Large Cupcake Stand - Page 2

nothing, look inside the box....it is build with a supportive frame. The MDF is about 1/4" thick, so that's plenty of support.

It weighs about 50 or 60 lbs for all 4 boxes?

antonia74,

How do you transport all those cupcakes?
Do you transport them on this stand?

Or is this just your display?

Thank you.

no, I don't transport them on the display....that would be impossible! icon_eek.gif (The stand is 3 feet wide and 2 feet tall and about 50 pounds!!)

I pack them in boxes and display them when I get there and assemble the stand onsite.

With all four tiers (and the top) it holds 144 of my large cupcakes evenly in lines, as seen in the photos.

I have these same box set ups. The idea was in Martha's wedding book a year or two back. I had my grandpa make them for me. Mine are 4 inches tall and we used MDF 1/2 inch thick too. When my grandpa made mine, he put wood glue on each end that owuld stick together and used finishing nails to keep them together. We then painted the boxes with white paint and I change the box theme out wiht different designs lalong the outside. I've used ribbon, foam polka dots, etc (hot glued on) and more recently scrapbooking paper in polka dots because we couldn't find foam in the colors we needed. When I use them, I rent the boxes out for 10.00 each. That usually includes the decorating of the boxes. The only issue I have is that it takes me a minute to get the boxes centered in the middle of the tier below. It's easy to tell when it's off just a little. I rented my boxes out over the weekend htis lastw eekend and noticed that they're looking a little shabby, so I'm gonna hit them again with another coat of white paint. I spent about 20 bucks making this stand and have probably made at least 500 on renting the babys out. As Martha would say... "It's a good thing!"
