Surprise someone (young or old!) with this clever cake stand that can conceal a secret gift within!

Thanks to its pop up centre, you can hide a special present*, whether a new mobile phone, concert tickets, cash, gift card etc for a birthday or Christmas, an engagement ring for a secret proposal or perhaps a sealed envelope revealing the sex of an unborn child at a gender reveal party!

This 2-in-1 popping cake stand can fit a round cake up to 12" diameter and 6" tall. Alternatively, transform it into a cupcake stand by adding the second tier. This can hold up to 24 standard size cupcakes and also includes a cupcake topper to add to the top of the gift pop as the perfect finishing touch. Instructions included.

Please note, this is NOT suitable for a cake covered with sugarpaste, the mechanism will not be able to work efficiently. Ensure your cake has a buttercream or frosting finish, and is being served at room temperature.
