I don't know if you still view this site, but the photos of the cupcake tree are not posting and I am so super curious to see what the process looks like.  If you can repost them, it would be very  helpful!

thanks!

They are loading just fine for me, photobucket is still hosting them. Weird. I'll try posting one here and see what that does. Let me know!

Stunning! I'm in the process of making a giant cupcake stand too; that design was one of my top choices. We decided to go with a square design...I only hope ours turns out half as nice as yours!!!

   Thank you for sharing, the 6ft cupcake tree was exceptionally creative.  I am hosting a baby shower for my sister and I found that you have to spend your life savings just to get a cake that makes a statement!  I am trying very hard to mimic your  creation....... You stated the bottom tier is 40 inches but how many inches did you shave off as the tiers decreased in size?  I really appreciate the help. I hope my sister glows when she sees her cupcake display.

I can't find my papers that have all the numbers, but I know that the top tier was 9 inches. With 9 tiers, we just gradually decreased from 40" to 9", and each tier was a different size. I think each was approximately 4 inches smaller than the one below it, we were very exact and used 15ths and 16ths of inches, since we had to allow for what the router would take off as well.

I hope this helps, I'm sorry I can't find the real information to be exact for you! Also, the styrofoam between tiers was usually about 1/2 the diameter of the tier above it, just so you can see how we proportioned that.

Good luck for the baby shower, your sister will LOVE it!

How impressive!  I've been looking for directions on how to make one of my own, and I found yours!  Any way you could let me know how much it cost to make & any troubleshooting you had?

Eek! I'm sorry this has taken me forever, I kept meaning to get back to you and forgetting. Marriage made me quite forgetful.

I'm guessing it probably cost $150+, we never totaled it. The Styrofoam with shipping was about $85, so that was the biggest cost, then the wood, buying the circle jig for the router and all of that.

I guess as far as troubleshooting I can't really think of anything. It really turned out perfectly. The only problem would be not having a base like my mom built, and I'm really not sure how she did it. She used the Christmas Tree stand, and then made 4 little boxes of wood that connected in an asterisk shape with a small hole in the middle for a curtain rod. And, they put a large dowel vertically under the top layer so that it fit inside the curtain rod and the layer sat on top, rather than having the hole all the others did.

I hope this helps, please let me know if I can clear anything up (and I'll try to respond more quickly!)
