This Popping Cake Stand Lets You Scare Your Friends While They're Blowing Out Their Candles
If you like surprises, you're going to love this Popping Cake Stand ($37) from Surprise Cake. This sneaky stand hides gifts and smaller items in a protected clear gift pod that jumps or "pops" out of a cake at the pull of a string, taking your guest of honour completely by surprise while they're blowing out their candles.
The cake plate is height adjustable and can hold cakes, bundt cakes, cupcakes, or tiers of all the above up to six feet in height — that's a lot of sugar! And it's reusable, so after a quick hand wash you can store it away with the rest of your party planning supplies until you want to scare someone else (in the best way possible, that is).
Nothing feels better than that post-surprise look of shock and excitement on someone's face, and with this stand, achieving that just got a whole lot easier. But who said the surprises had to stop there? Customers are displaying their creativity on social media, using their stands for gender reveals, proposals, baby announcements, and even reimagined "Elf in the Cake" scenarios. Can't wait to get in on the fun? Shop Surprise Cake's popping cake stand ahead and see all the fun ways other partygoers are using it too.
