Wedding Cupcake Stands!

Update: When I first wrote this post, I was envisioning everyone having a June wedding. I have since realized that weddings happen every day of every month! Duh! So with that in mind, I have updated my post and to all those planning a wedding, congratulations and much happiness in the future!

June is fast approaching and we all know what that means – WEDDINGS!! It’s a beautiful month for beautiful brides and grooms. The details of that one of a kind wedding can be long and arduous however. A trend that has been increasing in popularity over the last few years has been to have cupcakes instead of the traditional wedding cake. I love this idea and have seen some absolutely adorable cupcakes served at wedding receptions. And every cupcake must have a place to look regal and “wedding-like” right? Enter the wedding cupcake stands!

Cupcake Trivia
Cupcake Trivia

Cupcake Trivia

  • Cupcakes were originally called “Number Cakes” or “1234 Cakes” because it was an easy way to remember portions…One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk, and one spoonful of soda.
  • October 18 is National Chocolate Cupcake Day, November 9 is National Vanilla Cupcake Day, and December 15 is National Lemon Cupcake Day.
  • Original cupcake recipes were not frosted, and were usually just flavored with spices or dried fruit.
  • Cupcakes gained popularity in 1919 when Hostess began mass producing them. But they weren’t the cream filled, frosted kind we all know until the 1950’s.
  • Cupcakes started gaining popularity in the early 2000’s when New York City shops like Magnolia Bakery were featured on “Sex and the City.”
  • The record for eating the most cupcakes in the shortest time is 29 cupcakes in 30 seconds. That’s about .97 cupcakes per second!
  • The world’s largest cupcake weighed over 1,200 pounds and had over 2 million calories.
  • The first “cupcake only” bakery is Sprinkles Cupcakes, opened in 2005. They make over 25,000 cupcakes a day from 11 locations.
  • 13% of brides serve cupcakes at their weddings.

To all the upcoming brides and grooms, CONGRATULATIONS!!

  1. I am very impressed with your post for wedding products and especially your wedding cupcake stand, I am not planning on getting married at this time but if I ever do marry I promise I will do my wedding shopping from you

    Awesome Post & Products

    1. Thanks Jeff! You never know, life has a way of changing lol! If you have any friends that might be planning a wedding, send them my way. I appreciate your comment 🙂

  2. Very nice webpage on cupcakes. I have seen cupcake displays at several weddings lately in the family and they are quite popular. The cupcake displays you have displayed here are very ornate and would complement any wedding. The content and visuals are well done.

    1. Thanks Mick! It’s nice to hear that you have experienced cupcakes at weddings. Aren’t they fun! I hope you share this page with anyone you know that is planning a wedding. I think the cupcake stands would be a huge hit!

  3. Great article, Brenda! To be honest, I have never been to a wedding reception where cupcakes have been displayed. The Madeleine Collection silver cupcake stand caught my eye as I was reading your article which I would think the tea light candles would be ideal for a wedding reception setting.

    Has the cupcakes become more popular in wedding receptions? Are the cupcakes an addition to the traditional wedding cake, or a replacement?

    I remember watching a few episodes of “Sex And The City,” and actually recall Magnolia Bakery in one of the scenes. Who doesn’t like a cupcake?

    Thanks again for sharing Brenda, I will send couples looking to get married, your way!


    1. Hi Luke! Yes cupcakes are very, very trendy right now and they are replacing the traditional wedding cake. I have seen some incredibly ornate cupcakes being served, far grander than a cake! I agree that the stand with the candles would be gorgeous. I think the “Sex and The City” show got the cupcake a huge following! And you are right, who doesn’t love a cupcake? I know I cannot resist one. Thanks again for your comments Luke and do send some of those soon to be married people my way!

  4. Hello Brenda, oh how fun to read this post. Cupcakes do indeed seem to have their own personality don’t they? And i love the idea of cupcake stands instead of wedding cakes.
    Wow those are some amazing stands.
    Thanks so much for making this such a fun topic. And i especially loved the fun facts. Who knew that 1234 meant the recipe?
    in peace and gratitude, ariel

    1. Thanks Ariel! Yes, it makes you want to get a cupcake doesn’t it! I have seen some incredible cupcakes at weddings, some just too pretty to eat!! I’m glad you enjoyed the article, have a great day!!

  5. Hi Brenda,

    What a beautiful assortment of cupcake stands. I have never seen any of these and particularly adore those draped with the prisms. If they are large enough, the candle holders might be used for the soft floral foam to arrange flowers in. It is hard to tell their size. I also liked your history of cupcakes. The 1234 cake was the first cake my mother taught me how to bake. She loved them. Thanks for such an informative article on cupcake stands.

    1. Thank you Tanya! I agree the candle holders on the cupcake stand would be gorgeous with a flower arrangement added. My mom taught me the 1234 cake too! I am so glad you liked my article, and if you know of someone getting married, keep me in mind!

  6. Cool sweet post you have here, I have never attended a wedding with cupcakes…yet, and I look forward to go to one.
    The stands for them are really elegant and so inviting, it’s quite the wedding service!
    The cupcake Trivia was informative and entertaining! Who would have thought so much can be had about cupcakes! haha
    Thank you for sharing this with us.
    Wishing you $ucce$$ – Orion

    1. Thank you Orion! I hope you get a chance to attend a wedding with cupcakes, it is quite fun and they are quite yummy! I’m very glad you enjoyed my article, and if you know of any upcoming weddings, send the happy couple my way!

  7. It’s a wonderful selection of wedding Cupcakes Stands. It’s hard to decide what I would like to buy. Still, my favorite is Amalfi Decor 8-Piece Cupcake Stand with 3 Candle Holders. Looks so sophisticated with the antique finish. Great post. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed my article Maja! The cupcake stand with the candle holders seems to be a big hit! It is so elegant and yet designed for cupcakes! How great is that 🙂 Are you planning a wedding or know of someone that is? Please let them know I’m here, thanks!

  8. I’m feeling like I need a cupcake! Your history of cupcakes is a fun read. I can see why the cupcake stands would be very popular for wedding decor. I suppose it makes it a lot easier to present them rather than a cake that needs to be cut and served. Plus you could have a variety, unlike a cake.
    You could also have gluten/nut/flour free options for your guests too.
    A whole new world of choices and pretty stands!

    1. Hi Dianne! I could use a cupcake too! I think the idea of having a cupcake rather than a piece of cake is a great idea. Everyone gets the same size and can even take one home for a keepsake. I have seen some quite ornate cupcakes with flowers, etc. placed on each one. They can be truly beautiful! And I’ve seen them all different colors and designs on them. Lovely! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it 🙂

  9. Wow, I love these stands. They look amazing. I got married last October; I had no clue these stands even existed. I wish I would’ve known that before I had my wedding ceremony. We just had the regular wedding cake for the ceremony. I will definitely share this with my unmarried friends. Thank you so much for sharing this. I really enjoyed reading your article.

    1. Thank you so much Hong! I’m sure your wedding was beautiful and the cake gorgeous! I hope you do share with your unmarried friends and remind them that a cupcake is always fantastic!

  10. Hi Brenda,
    I have seen many beautiful, lovely cupcakes but not so on these elegant cupcake stands. Besides the wedding, these are perfect for a lavish birthday and wedding anniversary parties too.
    I love beautiful handcrafted goods and will stay tuned for more here.

    1. Thank you Sharon! I hadn’t thought of having cupcakes at a birthday or wedding anniversary party, it is a wonderful idea! I appreciate your thinking of those as well. I’m glad you love handcrafted goods as much as I do and do come back, I hope to have more ideas 🙂

  11. Love all the options of different cupcake displays. What a great idea, my guests will love the elegant display of my not not so elegant looking cupcakes. LOL Hay, any way to dress up may cupcakes, I’m in. Thanks for showing so many different options.

    1. Hi Irene! I’m happy you like the stands, they can make even the simplest cupcake look elegant. In other words, you don’t really need to have a fancy cupcake all dressed up LOL! Thanks for commenting 🙂

  12. I always enjoy checking out all the wonderful unique products on your site.

    We have used customized cupcake stands for birthdays but never thought about using them for the wedding as normally when you think of a wedding you think of a cake. This is a great concept. What I am thinking and with the many weddings that I have helped organized ( my mom had a business making wedding cakes) that it would be beautiful to have the cake in the center with the cupcake stands and cupcakes on each side. I feel that would be a beautiful display and one to keep in mind with my daughters upcoming wedding.

    1. Thanks for commenting Dena! You are absolutely right, a cake centered around cupcakes would be lovely! I think it would make a beautiful display at a wedding reception and I think the guests would love having a cupcake, maybe a “mini” wedding cake! I hope you do keep it in mind for your daughter’s wedding, and tell her congratulations on her upcoming wedding from me!

  13. I think cupcakes make a nice addition to a wedding reception. Even if they become an addition to a cake service. These cupcake stands offer a variety that can suit almost any style of ceremony. My daughter is planning a wedding and the Amalfi 2 looks like it will fit hers to a T. She was looking for a cupcake service that could be placed on tables for dessert service. I think these would look great and just the right size for her table settings!

    1. Hi Christina! Cupcakes are a perfect addition to a traditional cake service and I have seen some beautiful arrangements. Congratulations to your daughter and her upcoming nuptials and I hope she visits my site for some beautiful cupcake stands!

  14. I love all the cupcake stands you have here. I love cupcakes too! I think cupcakes are gaining more popularity at weddings also. The cupcake stores are all over cities so I know they must be selling to all sorts of parties including wedding parties!
    I am impressed by the trivia of cupcakes you have included.

    1. Thanks for your comment Cynthia! Who doesn’t love cupcakes, now really!! They are certainly gaining in popularity and it makes sense to me. They are just the right size to eat! I’m glad you enjoyed the article and please come back and visit soon!
