Shabby Chic Cupcake Stand

Extra Hot Whel Fabric and cupcake stand 002

  Recently I was looking for a cupcake stand. I searched the web but could only find cardboard and wood as well as the traditional Wilton. But I wanted something amazing. I worked as a professional cake decorator for twelve years and can make amazing cupcakes (will show in in a later post). So one night at two in the morning I woke up in a cold sweat. I had an idea. By three I was building glass structures from my faux crystal and dollar store remnants.

  If you would like to make one of these, start by washing your glass and letting totally air dry. Create you tower. Put it together over the course of a couple days. Use Gorilla glue to hold the glass together. Let dry for several days. Use an enjoy. They would make stunning centerpieces, holding holiday decorations after the cupcakes are gone.

  Use what you have and have what you use. The cost of the this project was $3.99 for the gorilla glue. Don’t my vintage rabbits look better against this backdrop? Tomorrow the glass shelves will be full of Easter treats.

  2. Well this is just so pretty! I've done this to make a 2-tier cake stand but not this many plates! I have a friend who is doing cupcakes for a wedding and is looking for nice displays and not having any luck so I sent her your link. I'm thinking for something like that, you could just use the nice, plastic round trays from the Dollar Store and sturdy plastic cups or vases for the pedestal? Thanks for posting!

  3. Great job! I love it. What sort of glue did you use? I have used glass like this for garden art!
