Parties: Decorating My Cupcake Stand!

Hello there, cupcake lovers! I have had a couple people ask about the cupcake stand that I've been using! I picked it up at Michaels ($20), but used a 50% off coupon ($10), making this fabulous party piece quite the bargain! I like it because it is plain and can be used and decorated for any type of celebration!
Here it is at Kate's Lollipop Party:

Here it is at Lisa's Boutique Party:



I started looking for a cupcake stand after I saw this FABULOUS photo from Amy Atlas Events. Swoon! This photo makes my heart skip a beat:



I LOVE the letters stuck to her stand, but I just ran out of time to give that one a try!


For the Wilton cake stand, to make the paper circles I just traced each layer of the cake stand onto paper. Then I cut it out about 1/4" in from the line I made. Then I cut a slit from the outside edge to the center of the circle. Then I cut a small circle out in the center. It was just trial and error, just keep cutting until fits! Then I taped the slit together. It doesn't have to be perfect since the cupcakes cover it anyway!



For Kate's I did try to attach paper around the edges, but it was very frustrating to get it to stick. The edges are actually curved to "show off" the cupcakes, so trying to attach paper to a curved circle was next to impossible. (you can see the overlap in the photo above...does not make this perfectionist very happy!) Maybe ribbon would be easier, since it's more flexible!

Good Luck! Send me pictures if you decorate one!

Kimmi - Just decorate it the edges with ribbon and some double stick tape.

I just started planning for my daughter Madeleine's first birthday party and have planned to do a Lollipop theme party. I am so glad I came across your blog. I too did a cupcake them for my older daughter Annabelle for her 1st birthday. I handmade most everything for her birthday and plan on doing the same for Madeleine. I wanted to ask you how you make your scallop cupcake toppers. Is that cut using some sort of scallop shaped cutter? Can the design be made in a circular shape on powerpoint or do you use Elements? I love your blog and have added it to my google readers for updates. Thanks for the fantastic ideas!!!

Thank you for posting this Kim! I tried to replicate your stand on my own for Ava's party, and since we rescheduled it, I'm going to redo it! Love the ribbon idea!

Sarah - Good idea..I'll try it!

Jen - the paper is DCWV Rainbow Stripes!

Stefani - I use a punch to make the scallop circles. I use Publisher for designing.

Thanks for the love, girls!

As soon as I saw this cupcake stand on your blog, I had to immediately run out and buy one. I'm a cupcake fanatic, and this will be a perfect way to showcase them. Thanks!!!

I just ordered your ladybug cupcake circles and was wondering how long of a stick do you use for them? thanks!
