I made cake pops for the first time and bought 2 of these Wilton Pops Stands and was sorely disappointed! What a waste of $8.00! They are flimsy and cheaply made. The product is made of cardboard and clearly cannot support the weight of the cake pops when placed in the slots. After putting the stand together, I tried to "pre-puncture" the holes as the told in the directions and the stand became very wobbly and unstable, so I took it all apart, punctured all the holes, and put it back together again. After my first cake pop was placed, I noticed right away that this was not going to work. I thought maybe I made it wobbly because I had taken it apart, so I opened my 2nd one and punctured the holes before I put it together this time...and the same thing happened. I ended up sending my husband to the store to buy a piece of Styrofoam for me...and viola! That worked wonders. I will definitely stick to the Styrofoam over these!
