cutest cupcake stand ever

Cupcake Stand and Cupcake

Cupcake Stand CU

One day in my online travels, I came across a cute cupcake stand. I thought, oh, how darling and expensive! And then I though, hey! I could make my own. Ignoring all other deadlines and thankful it was naptime for a certain 4 year-old, I got to work immediately. I used thick cherry wood paper from Creative Imaginations because I thought the thickness and weight would easily hold a cupcake. I am delighted to say that using 110 pound cardstock has also provided adequate support. Isn’t that just the cutest thing ever? (if I do say so myself :))

So, because I am away at CHA-S in Chicago, I thought I would spend the days this week sharing all about this project with you. Stay tuned and I will have a video tutorial showing how to create your own cupcake stand. And then, I will share all about that yummy cupcake atop the stand. It is evil. Pure evil in pastry form. :) Dark chocolate cupcake, raspberry filling, and white chocolate butter cream frosting…oh yes, this is a cupcake for dessert. And one is all you can eat. :)

thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Spellbinders-Standard Circles Large, Classic Rectangles Large, Classic Ovals Large, Classic Scalloped Border Petite, Paper-Thick Cherry Paper (Creative Imaginations)
