Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a clear round cupcake stand to hold 70 cupcakes and an 8" and 6" round cake on top. I don't like the stand I currently have. It is the acrylic center post one. It just never stays straight. I was looking for suggestions on one that is sturdy yet affordable. Thanks for your help.

You can fix your current stand.
Go to a crafts supply or a plastics supplier, and buy some acrylic pillars or rods. Cut 6 per tier of space to be fixed. Measure the space carefully.
Cut one rod and test it--it should be high enough that you should be able to just wedge it in between the plates, in the innermost ring of cupcakes. Cut the rest of the rods to the same length with a mitre box. No glue or drilling required. That will cure the wobbles.
