The cobbler's children have no shoes and this baker ate no cupcakes haha
We had a super busy weekend, baking up a storm over here . . . Wedding Cupcakes. Although I would much prefer a baking storm to Hurricane Irene, hoping all of you are safe and sound!
Since they were all white cupcakes I wanted to display them on a bright stand, but spending $20+ on something to display cupcakes was not really an option. A simple white stand is worth the investment, but something crazy that might only get used a few times in it's life isn't.
So, a trip to a second hand store to look for some lonesome, one of a kind dishes was in order.
I think that when shopping secondhand you have to keep your options open, and that's exactly how we snagged these flower dishes and hideous cups for $6. I had originally planned to buy one large dish and three smaller dishes but when I found this little set I couldn't pass it up!
A tube of silicone and 12hour drying time later the cups were stuck to the plates,
And we had a cupcake stand :)
Add some white wedding cupcakes,
a little banner and it's complete.
The cupcakes were rainbow sprinkle, with white icing, and little fondant flowers. I wish the pictures did them justice, but the white on white on white doesn't really show up well on camera (kind of like me haha).
I hope you liked our $6 cupcake stand as much as I do! It's funny because we made it to save money on something we didn't plan on using often, but I want to use it all the time now :)
Total Cost: $6 for plates and cups
Tube of silicone FREE (left over from another project) but if you don't already had a tube lying around it's another $4!
I think this project would be great with some mismatched plates and some candle holders in between, or super cute coffee mugs! It was so easy!! I hope you'll try it!
