Our Original Cupcaketree has become the
cupcake stand of choice when planning a wedding reception or festive
gathering. Constructed of sturdy ¼” corrugated cardboard,
it is reusable, recyclable and lightweight for shipping.
The idea for the Original Cupcaketree emerged
when Meg Truesdell, co-owner of the company, was planning her wedding. “Meg
wanted to serve individual cupcakes at her wedding because they were
fun, inexpensive and easy. The trick was to make them look elegant enough
for a wedding reception,” says Meg’s mom and business partner,
Judy Truesdell. The concept became a family affair when Meg’s dad,
a designer, came up with the unique design for the cupcake stand. “It
was an immediate hit,” said
Meg. Recently, Cupcaketree.com has introduced Mini Cupcaketrees,
Square Cupcaketrees and Petite Cupcaketrees and our new Party in a Box
Cupcaketree Kit. Our exciting new Vine Wrappers are a beautiful addition
to our original large round Cupcaketree.
With the emergence of the green wedding movement, brides are using “mindful indulgence” as a guide for planning their weddings. Concerned with the waste created by more traditional weddings, these brides are pursuing eco-friendly products to incorporate into their weddings. Cupcaketree.com, a Michigan-based company, made a business decision early on to use corrugated cardboard for environmental purposes. “We knew the corrugated industry insisted on reforestation and recycling in order to be environmentally responsible,” says Judy Truesdell. And an added benefit is the stand’s light weight, which helps keep delivery costs down.
