This post is for all the cupcake lovers!
How to make your own cupcake stand! It is so easy all you need is:
Cake boards: 1×8″, 1×10″, 1×12″
Styrofoam cake dummies Each 2″ high in the sizes: 2X6″ and 2×7″
Satin ribbon, enough for both cake boards and the Styrofoam cake dummies
Glue stick or double sided tape
Strong double sided carpet tape
A pair of scissors
Start by glue the Styrofoam cake dummies together. So they can dry completely.
Take the satin ribbon, and fasten it on the cake dummies with a metal pin. Then wrap it tightly all the way around the cake dummies.
Note: you can also glue the ribbon on the cake dummies if you like, just use a glue stick.
Secure the satin ribbon with a metal pin or a small piece of double sided tape. Continue with the rest of the cake dummies.
Place the cake boards on the paper and with the pencil draw a line around the cake boards. Cut out the paper circles with a pair of scissors.
Rub the glue stick all over the cake board and place the paper circles on top.
To attach the satin ribbon around the side of the cake boards use either a glue stick or double sided tape.
Now it is time to assemble the cake stand. Use strong double sided carpet tape so that the cake dummies stays in place on the cake boards. Note: Remember when you have assembled the cake stand with cakes on it, not to move it around too much.
