Cake Pop Stand?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
What do you put your cake pops in? I have only made them once, but a friend asked me to make some for her son's school party. I used an egg carton when I was making them to let them cool -then put them in a big cup - I had purchased a wilton cake pop holder- but seriously couldn't figure out how to assembe the cardboard thing!

Do they sell little stands? I don't want to group them all in a cup-I'm going for something cute and professional looking.

Thanks!

I usually get a little painted bucket from Hobby Lobby or Michael's, a styrofoam flower pot insert and tissue shreds from the Dollar Store and put a dozen cake pops in each one. Simple. thumbs_up.gif

I was just placing my order at Decopac.com yesterday and saw that they now carry cake pop stands and supplies. However, they didn't have a picture online so I can't say exactly what they look like - perhaps if you email them you can get a picture? I don't think they were too much $$$, Decopac usually has GREAT prices!

I've not used this personally, but know of several who have purchased it and raved about it's sturdiness, how easy it is to wipe clean and how nice it looks - The Cupcake Tower - they've recently come out with a double model that has holes on one side for cake pops, then you can flip and it's a solid board for cupcakes. Very nice looking. http://www.thecupcaketower.com/ If my link doesn't work, it's thecupcaketower.com

That looks awesome! Thanks.

I am going to try and make my own - I want one in the shape of a rainbow with clouds- so this weekend I will cut, paint, seal and drill it.

If this works.....maybe I'll start making and selling my own icon_smile.gif

There`s a business on Facebook who sells the stands here:

Not sure what they are made of, but looks like wood? Wonder if they are a member of CC.

I can't check facebook from work (not that they would be happy with me checking cake central -all day!)
But the link I saw shows them made of wood, with a couple coats of glossy seal on it so they can be wiped down. I've done a little wood work (well, watched my husband do woodwork) and don't think it will be hard at all to make a stand...rather then pay 40-90 dollars for one.
My husband may not be as excited as I am, but he's going to start cutting out wood right away so I can test these out!!

It is easy to make our own and since you have dabbled in woodwork, it won't be that hard to do!

I just wanted to share that I did end up making my own cake pop stand, and it came out so awesome! I was making rainbow cake pops so I made the stand a rainbow! I just used birchwood and then had my husband cut it and sand it and then I painted it and drilled in the holes.....it was a HUGE HIT!

Here's a picture icon_smile.gif
