Why Wilton Cupcake Stand And Not Another Brand?

July 22nd

When I recommend this stand to someone, I often get asked, “Can I just get another brand?” or “Does it have to be Wilton?” That’s a tough question to answer because it’s a yes/no type of thing. There are other brands out there, and you can even make your own if you’re in a daring mood.

That being said, there is a reason Wilton has the following it does in the cake community. Wilton equals guaranteed quality. You’re not going to have to worry about cheap materials causing your cupcake mountain to collapse under its own weight (talk about a quick way to ruin a party!). So, yes you can get another brand, but no, I don’t recommend it.

Wilton Cupcake Stand – Choosing The Right Size (Traditional)

Large Wilton Cupcake Stand – holds 38 cupcakes

The largest cupcake stand Wilton makes is also the most difficult to locate. It is beautiful to see with all five racks completely filled, but that is also its drawback.

This stand is absolutely impressive, and if you do a lot of big events, it really is a show stopper. That being said, it isn’t very versatile and can look a little puny if you’re not entertaining a large group and some of the tiers are empty.

Medium Wilton Cupcake Stand – holds 23 cupcakes

The medium cupcake stand offers the most flexible functionality. At 23 cupcakes, this stand is the Goldilocks of cupcake stands. Not too large and not too small, this stand is perfect for most all parties. Owning two of these stands will take care of the vast majority of your entertaining needs. If you’re only going to buy one (or two) stands, this is the one to get.

Small Wilton Cupcake Stand – holds 13 cupcakes

The darling of the bunch, the small cupcake stand is guaranteed to get you an, “Oh isn’t that cute,” anytime you bring it out. While it isn’t as versatile as the medium stand, it is perfect for small gatherings or as a compliment to one or more of the larger stands.

Wilton Cupcake Stand – Buying the Right Size Wilton Cupcake Stand for Your Party

July 2nd

So you’ve decided to buy a Wilton Cupcake Stand . Whether you were sold on the attractive display, the ease of setup, or you just want to allow your guests the fun of choosing their own cupcake, your next step is to determine what size you need.

The trick is to have a stand that is large enough for the occasion but not larger. Obviously, this can be a little more difficult than it sounds. Often times, you don’t know the exact number of guests until the day before or sometimes even the day of the party, and you don’t want to be scrambling to get a different size, or worse yet, worrying about the cupcakes running out and constantly having to refill an empty stand.

There are three traditional Wilton Cupcake Stand sizes (small, medium, and large) plus two additional specialty stands. Each of these sizes offer advantages over the others, and in the end, much of the decision will come down to personal preference.

Next time I blog, I’ll break down the different advantages of the varying sizes.
