    1) we are going to have about 200 – 250 cupcakes (if people ever send their RSVPs in I will have a final #)…..

    2) We are having a custom-made stand in the shape of the Stanley Cup. The extras will just go on the table around the stand. 

    3) A friend from high school is doing everything but it looks like she’s going to use plywood and heavy-duty cardboard (and silver paint).

    @Taeyers:  Hello!  We are having about 6o cupcakes (small wedding tho), a mixx of reg sized and mini cupcakes.  We’re also having a mini cake for the cutting that will be made to look like a giant cupcake. 

    Like this inspiration pic.

    We started out looking for a nice stand, but couldn’t find anything we like. In the end, we decided to go with mis-matched proceline dessert trays.

    Like these ones..

    And the mini cake will go on a reg cake platter.

    I’m super excited about it all! I can’t wait to see it come to life!

    We had mini cupcakes (300) and rented the stand from the baker.

    I was just about to post a similar question! All of the pretty cupcake stands I like are a bit small – and I’m not sure how I feel about some of the cupcakes being on the table.

    Two of our four flavors are also key lime and salted caramel!

    this is the one I like so far from crate and barrel-

    @Taeyers:  between 100-120  – and yeah, i don’t want a bunch of small ones. 

    I think I want one that’s large and squared. I didn’t really want cardboard – but I’m curious as to how sturdy these are: http://www.cupcaketree.com/product.html

    ETA – click on view decorated photos  – some look kind of nice!

    Maybe you could use boxes decorated with ribbons.
