Cupcake Stands For Weddings - The Latest Trend
A new concept which is gaining rapidly in popularity
is to have decorated cupcakes instead of the traditional large cakes at weddings. For as long as anyone can
remember wedding cakes have been large heavy fruit cakes covered in white icing and set out in tiers. However these
traditional cakes now have a serious rival as an increasing number of couples are deciding to have a
wedding cupcake stand instead.
The traditional white tiered wedding cake is undoubtedly beautiful and elegant and
will always be very popular. However a display of smaller cakes on a wedding cupcake stand can also look amazing
when properly done.

There is no shortage of cupcake stands to choose from for your wedding. Whether
your day is going to be something small and intimate or a large formal function you will have no problem finding
something just right.

beat. With six tiers this makes an outstanding display. The top tier can be used for a larger cake. This is a very
popular cake stand and has attracted a lot of good reviews from buyers at
