Tutorial: DIY Cupcake Stand


Since posting my Christmas Candyland Dessert Table last week, I've had a lot of people ask for the details, and namely how I did the cupcake stand and the white, glittery trees ( tutorial coming soon) that you can see in the photo below.



What you'll need:

* 3 x 12 mm thick cake drums (I bought 8", 10" and 12") purchased online here.
* Empty baby cereal tin, or tall food cans (full)
* Hot glue
* Sticky tape
* Matching ribbon

The cake boards come with silver foil, which was very handy for me as it matched the table color scheme perfectly, but you can also cover each individual board with scrapbooking paper of your choice and just secure with tape to the back of each board.

Using the scrap-booking paper from the Christmas Candyland Party Collection, I simply wrapped an empty baby cereal tin and folded the edges at top and bottom of tin and secured with tape again!


Glue some ribbon to the edges of each board using hot glue and display your cupcakes proudly! :)
 
TIP: Cover your board as I did with fake snow before displaying your cupcakes on it to add to the "Winter Candyland" effect! :)

The beauty of this cupcake stand is that you can re-use it for any occasion, just change the paper and ribbon! Very cost effective if you are an events planner with lots of parties, are on a budget or simply can't to find matching tableware!

Hope you found it useful! :)
XOXO
