Big Top Cupcake Holder
I thought for sure this cupcake holder would be cheaply made and collapse, but it didn't. I was pleasantly suprised at how sturdy it is. Got lots of compliments from the guests about it.

Very Sturdy - Great Buy
I purchased two of these for my son's carnival b-day party. Together (2) they held over 3 1/2 dozen cupcakes. VERY impressed with the durability and how sturdy they are. Easily disassembled to store away for future use.

Really Cute for My Carnival Birthday
These are made very sturdily out of thick foam board and are brightly colored. They are the perfect stand for my cupcakes. My only complaint is with Oriental Trading Company's quality control...I purchased two of these, one had a little tear in the base piece which was easily reinforced with some tape, no big deal, it still stands perfectly and sturdily. The other package had two of the same base pieces when it should have had two different ones (One base piece has a cut on the top and the other base piece has a cut on bottom and they slide together to form an X for the bottom support) Obviously there was no easy fix for this mistake and I called OT customer service right away. They were very nice and sent me out a new one right away at no charge and since it was not an expensive item, I didn't need to send back the mismatched one. I received the replacement a week and a half before the party (she asked if May 5th was ok and I told her no it was my party date and she sent it rush order no problem and at no charge.) Good customer service, would buy this product again just knowing that even if it is wrong, it will get replaced and on time.

Cute cupcake holder, annoying assembly
The cupcake holder turned out to be very cute once I figured out how to put it together. There were NO instructions. It wasn't until right before the party that I opened it up and realized there were no instructions. I had to look up the picture and go by that. It was very frustrating since I was running short on time and took a few tries to get it together. Once it was done, we loved it and received many compliments.

it is what it is.
like everyone else, got this for a carnival party. its good size and more durable than the cardboard ones u get in stores but my peices were a bit bent and because of that not all the pieces fit in the right way. Once i get the cupcakes on it'll cover the spots that arent connected, and its good enough for now. probably wont buy one of these again tho.

Not Worth It
I read the reviews for this item before buying it and decided to give it a chance. I was disappointed when I got the stand in the mail today; the base was bent and a few areas I had to cut excess paper off in order for the stand to be assembled. I am sure each stand is different, but the one I received was not as expected. Wish I could get the picture uploader to work so everyone could see this. Everything else I ordered in this line turned out okay though.

great for my carnival party
I got these for my daughter's carnival party and they went great with the decor of the party. The quality is good enough for a few hours and I am keeping them so I will use them again. My mother-in-law couldn't get the jist of putting them together, however, I did it in no time. Maybe a set of instructions included would be helpful.

Iffy on Quality
I read reviews on this that said it was very sturdy and so I decided to try it. But when it arrived, the bottom board was a little bent & tattered, and since all the pieces are connected, the entire thing doesn't quite fit together very snug. But it is cute and decent for the price so I will still keep & use it. I just do wish mine hadn't arrived with a kink in it!
