Sizes for a 5 Tier Cupcake Stand to fit 17-18 dz cupcakes?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have someone who will build me cupcake stands, but i need to figure out dimensions of the actual stand to fit 17-18 dz cupcakes all together.  The top tier will have a 6" cake on top (so a 8" round top tier), so i won't be able to fit any cupcakes on top, so that leaves me with 4 tiers to fit around 216 cupcakes.  What are the next 4 tier sizes i would need?  is there a website that has this information? also, they will be round.  Thanks everyone for you help!

Even is all the cupcakes don't fit on the stand, you can surround the stand (especially if it has little feet) with more cupcakes on the tabletop.  I do that all the time and it looks fine.  And I always use a 6" on the top - IMO it's the perfect size.  I'd talk a customer into a 6" from an 8".

math was never my forte, so thanks for the equation.  My husband on the other hand is a math wiz, so I'll give this to him and let him figure it out =)
