I am getting many emails from people who want their treats to be displayed all beautifully.
There are tooons of ways to display your cake pops and I thought it would be great to list some of the options here for you.
What I usually tell my clients and readers when they ask me about displaying their cake pops, (who do not own cake pop stands and who do not have time to craft their own) is to just use cute, decorative bowls, cute cups, home decor glasses, even porcelain vases and usual glass bowls work so well!
All you need to do is to buy colored decorative, craft sand and fill up your desired bowl, vase etc. with the sand and stick your cake pops in there.
Easy peasy but so adorable to look at.
Here are a few examples of what I used so far – Starting with glassware:
Let’s say you want to display many cake pops at a Wedding or a birthday party – it sure has to look beautiful, right?
You can shop great cake pops stands online, for example acrylic stands that fit to any theme basically.
This one for example, I found it on Amazon:
You have a low budget?
You can get your craft on and make a cake pop stand yourself! It is very easy.
The most common way to display cake pops is to use styrofoam blocks / cake dummies.
But to make it look neat, you can cover those with pretty paper and ribbons to match it your personal theme and style.
Just use a round styrofoam block for example and wrap pretty paper around and secure it with tiny needles.
The edges can be decorated with fancy ribbon et voilá, you have a cute cake pop stand for less than 10 dollars.
See here a few examples of how I usually work with styrofoam cake pop stands:
As you can see crafted a 3 tiered Cake Pop Tower out of three different sized styrofoam blocks. Very easy. Adding ribbon to the edges makes it extra cute.
Since I am a really big LED lights fanatic, it was only a matter of time that I came up with the idea to put led stripes around the cake pop tower’s styrofoam blocks.
It looks so cool, it’s so stylish and thus perfect for parties, I tell you!
Now, back to more options:
A very elegant idea is to use wooden cake pop stands.
Absolutely beautiful. By Sweet Lauren Cakes.
But you either have to find somebody who makes them for you, or you get your craft on and try by yourself. It is such a highlight!
Oh wait, I found somebody pretty amazing that can do the job:
Lovely KC Bakes offers amazing wooden cake pops stands!
From a “skinny mini” version that holds up 6 Cake Pops, up to the “mega” cake pop stand which holds up 50 Cake Pops! So awesome!
You can even get a custom design, just ask for a quote. (kcbakes AT hotmail DOT com)
Another great and cheap idea is to simply put each cake pop in a cellophan bag and tie a ribbon around it. It is a little more time consuming to do that with hundreds of pops (I have been there before!), but it sure looks cute and special!
I have seen such a cool idea as well by Abigail Barnes on Paper And Cake!
She used three different sized plant pots and filled those with floral foam.
SO reminded me of my Polka Dot Tiered Planters I made last year. Awesome work, Abigail,
I know I will try this as well…not with flowers this time though =)
And last but not least I have a couple of more options for you, a little mixed up with notes though:
I am in love with these cute cupcake stands! Upside down cake pops look super cute on those!
You see, I told you: Many ways!
There is lots of inspiration on the net, especially Pinterest! Just be on the look-out whenever you are surfing the net, keep your eyes open for new inspiration and how other people display and show off their treats.
Please feel free to comment and to suggest other cool ideas how to display your cake pops -
I will add it all to the list! I’d appreciate it.
Wishing everyone a great week, stay blessed.
