Creative cardboard cupcake stand - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I have at home a couple of acrylic pieces cut to size which I use as plates (double cardboard has worked as well) and then divide them using a 4-inch wide PVC pipe. It works pretty nicely and it is very stable. Once you put them in place they are not going anywhere but, if you don't feel safe, you can use some double sided or mounting tape to secure them in place.

You can wrap the PVC in color gift paper or in any other type of paper you like to go with your cake. I don't have pictures here with me 'cause I'm at work right now but here is the idea.

You could also try making a cardboard cupcake stand. It is not a big deal. You can use hard cardboard material for building the stand and then you can use glazed printed papers over it and paste ribbons or laces around the corner.

Heavy, wider at the top than the bottom drinking glasses work as well.

 

I have created an impromptu three tier cupcake stand with those and pretty glass plates, use blu-tack or similar to hold them in place temporarily.

cake dummies can also stand in for the supports between your rounds. I'd use cake drums in a pinch.
