Judy Truesdell, owner of, is proud to announce the “Party in a Box”, their newest product for do-it-yourself customers. The kit comes with a Petite Round Cupcaketree, 36 cupcake wrappers, 4 sets of colorful disc overlays, endcaps and assembly instructions. When fully assembled, the stand is 10 inches tall and 14 inches wide, and has three tiers with individual measurements of 14, 11 and 8 inches. It will hold 24 to 36 cupcakes. “With ‘Party in a Box,’ our customers only need to open the box, select a color scheme, put the Cupcaketree together and add cupcakes,” says Judy Truesdell.

The Truesdells have a unique family tree. They created The Original Cupcaketree 11 years ago and it’s become the product of choice for do-it-yourself party hosts across the country and overseas who literally want to put the icing on their own unique cupcake creations.

Judy and Meg Truesdell, mother and daughter co-owners of have transformed cupcake stands into eye-catching centerpieces with customers displaying delightfully decorated treats on multi-tiered pedestals. The idea emerged when bride-to-be Meg Truesdell opted to serve cupcakes at her wedding reception instead of the traditional wedding cake. “The trick was to make them elegant enough for a wedding reception,” says Meg.

Father of the bride Terry Truesdell rose to the occasion by designing a unique five-tiered stand constructed of a heavy mirrored material weighing over 800 pounds. After chefs, caterers and guests saw the display holding over 300 cupcakes they all wanted one too. One year later, a sturdy, redesigned Cupcaketree emerged. Since its wedding debut, the Cupcaketree has become a popular item for birthdays, showers, proms, graduations, family reunions, seasonal holidays – and all kinds of other special events.

The Niles, Mich. based family business now has a diversified product line of cupcake stands in multiple sizes and shapes holding from 300 to 24 cupcakes. Sizes include round and square large, mini and petite cupcake stands along with a Party in a Box kit, vine wrapper kit and plastic endcaps.

The products are a perfect fit for today’s environmentally conscious consumers. The ecofriendly Cupcaketree is made of corrugated cardboard. It’s sturdy enough to be reused multiple times before recycling. And the product is made in the USA.    

“The demand continues to grow,” says Judy Truesdell. “The Cupcaketree is a real hit for busy people who like the convenience of being able to quickly put together a special cupcake display with a minimum of fuss.”
