Rated 2 out of 5 by Baking Queen from While I too loved this idea, there is more to it than it stated in your recipie and reviews. I borrowed the pan from a friend, so did not have the luxury of your instructions included when you buy the pan. I did reseach on your web site for more info, but did not find any to help. Since I am experienced with cakes, I knew the bottom cake had to be sturdy. Unfortunately there is nothing on this site that gives you the pans info. After following the assembly directions and decorating the cakes (and I did insert a dowel rod), the cake began to tilt after a short time. The side of the large cupcake buckled. While I did use a sturdy from scratch cake, I should have done a pound cake as the base. It would have been helpful to have this info before I started. Will try again to see if it will work, but type of cake or a recipie should be included with the "Cupcake Stack Cake" instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HLitrenta from I made a version of this for my daughter's 1st birthday. I didn't use fondant, just buttercream frosting. While it was a bit messy to put together with frosting, it still turned out adorable and everyone loved it at the party! I just did my own lines, zig zags, and dots using decorating tips. No one wanted to cut into it because it was so cute. Be sure to read the directions before getting started, it took me a few times to understand that I needed to make additional tops for tiers 2 & 3, but once you actually start putting it together it made sense. I also served additional cupcakes alongside it for the kids to all have their own cupcake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smastro from This is such a fun and creative way to present someone with a tower of cupcakes that they can break down and share. Be careful when piling the cupcakes that you go slowly and make sure you have balance.
