Popping Cake Stand

The Gift Pod is 6.0” tall and has a diameter of 2.8”.

You can bake OR buy a cake!
Pro Tip: If you buy the cake, select one with minimal decorations in the center and bottom perimeter to make it easier to core out the center and transfer from the store board to the Surprise Plate.
Pro Pro Tip: Ask the bakery for extra matching frosting to cover the center of the cake OR cover the Gift Pod with our Candle Topper for an easy solution! You can also cover the center with Surprise Sprinkles for a confetti explosion!

The Popping Cake Stand can easily transform into a Popping Cupcake Stand by placing both included Plates on to the Stand and replacing the included flat Gift Pod cover with the Cupcake Topper (sold separately or as a Featured Set)!
