Want to make your cake pops stand out on the dessert table? Try one of these 30+ DIY cake pop stands!
Cake pops became really popular around 2010. Everywhere you looked online you would see a new cake pop recipe, theme or ways to package them. Once Instagram became popular, the online cake pop craze was slowly replaced with other sweets like push-up pops, red velvet, cronuts and freakshakes.
But this doesn’t mean that people just stopped making cake pops! In fact, they can still be enjoyed at weddings, showers and birthday parties. They can be part of a beautiful dessert table and have many ways of being displayed.
How to display cake pops
The easiest way to display cake pops is to put them upside down like the photos above. However, many cake pops don’t look right upside down or with a flat top that would be created by the plate. You can purchase cake pop stands that hold the pops upright, but they are either too plain or too expensive. This means that creating your own cake pop stand is definitely worth the time and effort! Plus, it can be used to hold anything on a stick like lollipops, kabobs or chocolate dipped marshmallows.

I love the woodland theme of this dessert stand! Each tier is a moss covered Styrofoam disc and the dessert elements shown are sugar cookie animals and chocolate marshmallow mushrooms. However, you could make woodland themed cake pops to display as well.
Jaime created this tower for cake pops after seeing a cupcake one on Martha Stewart. She used mdf and drilled holes on each level. If you want to use it for cupcakes instead of pops, just cover the holes with something.
Here is another great upcycle idea. Put floral foam in a drawer and cover it with crinkle paper. Marshmallow pops are shown here in a drawer of the dessert table, but you could use cake pops or remove the drawer and put it on top of the table.
For her son's 2nd birthday party, Suzanne added marshmallow pops on dome stands at the last minute. These are just Styrofoam balls cut in half and wrapped in tissue paper. If you wanted to add cake pops, you should probably put a weight on the bottom.
