I would charge a deposit/rental fee also on the cupcake stand. If you loan it out for free then they will assume that they can borrow it anytime again in the future for free again and you don’t want them to learn that! For this circumstance I wouldn’t worry about the guests confusing who did the cake or who did cupcakes- if it’s the neice making them you can count on her and/or her mom telling all the ladies at the shower that she made the cupcakes herself.
