With a little work...
...this cupcake stand can be anything you want!
I purchased the stand for my BBQ Engagement Party. Our theme was very casual, but I wanted a little something to spruce up the desserts.
To decorate, I bought the Honeycomb Home Scrapbook collection. Using white glue and a razor blade I covered all the surface areas with scrapbook paper. After assembly, I glued on the buttons, push pins, and cutouts.
It took me about two hours to put together, but it was worth it! Perfect for holding the desserts, sturdy, and reusable.

Great addition to decorate
We had this filled with cupcakes for our son's graduation. It is made out of white styrofoam but then it is a blank canvas for you to decorate. We added school color using colored paper around the edges of the tiers; it looked really good. Everyone loved it and how it brought your attention to the decorated cupcakes. The frosting gets on it but I just wiped it down with a moist wet rag and it came off! Loved it!! I'm saving it to use for two more graduations!!

Great for the Price
Like others on here, I read the reviews first before buying and understood that it is just plain white Styrofoam material. I bought it since it'll be so easy to decorate for any party occasion. In the picture, I used simple decorative ribbons and put wax paper to make it easier to clean up. I used this stand for a bridal shower! I love that it can easily be assembled, which is great when moving the stand WITH the cupcakes on it. For the price, it's worth it!

Better than you'll find at any hobby store
I bought this for a birthday party. I ended up with more cupcakes than would fit on this so I went down to the local hobby store to but another one. The quality of this one vs. the one purchase at the store was infinitely more superior AND was less expensive. I ended up recycling the other one and keeping this one. Even though this is made of foam, it won't deteriorate and look shabby over time. This was definitely made to be used over and over again.

I ordered two of these for a wedding reception. When they came one of them had the wrong pieces in it. I was able to live chat with a representative and they sent out a replacement immediately. I liked that they are a blank slate and can be decorated any way you want to match any theme. I used ribbon on the edges and scrapbook paper for the top tier for a very simple design.

It was perfect!
It was perfect and fit 24 cupcakes plus a 8 inch round cake at top. Easy to assemble and decorate.

Best stand I've found for the cost.....
I've looked at cupcake stands in all the craft and discount stores. Didn't find one I liked. They all seemed flimsy, or to costly. For the cost, these turned out to be great. Easy to customize for any occassion. They hold plenty of cupcakes, 30-35 each stand.

The stand appears to be sturdy, but my first one arrived with a chunk of styrofoam missing on the side of one of the circles and I called and they replaced it immediately. The second one, however, arrived with a piece of the support stand broken off, but I combined the good pieces together from both and had one good stand. It is thicker than one I used previously, but I haven't had a chance to test it out with cupcakes/cake on it yet.

A lot sturdier than the picture depicted. Shelves are about 1 inch thick. Didn't have to add any support.
