I am terrible at making cakes but I am okay at making cupcakes. I decided for my daughter’s birthday that I wanted to make cupcakes but then I got a bit carried away. My husband built a cupcake stand out of wood for me. I made decorative background strips and attached them to the stand. I also made little picks with creatures to stick in each cupcake. The theme of the party was a Luau so this is supposed to be from the floor of the ocean on the bottom level, the top of the water on the second level, the beach on the third and then the island paradise on the top tier. I made a 6” cake for the top, which fell apart and had to be patched back together with frosting. For the cupcake wrappers, I made a template on Design studio using circles, it worked but there was a bunch of paper waste. I wish they had the Easter cartridge back in September.
I wish that the picture was in better focus, I accidentally hit the landscape button on my camera and all the pictures from the party are slightly off! What a rookie mistake! I am planning on posting instructions on my blog about making the cupcake stand. It might take me a while to get all the measurements done. Thanks!
My sister-in-law used the same stand for her son's birthday. It was a cute airplane theme.
