Tutorial Tuesday - DIY cupcake stand



I have my son's birthday party coming up and it seems like it is party season!  Baby showers, birthday parties, anniversaries, and weddings.  So I saw this cute tutorial and thought you all might be able to put it to good use!  The fun part is that the parts are all customize-able with different scrap book papers and wrapping papers.

Find the complete tutorial here at cake journal.

One note, you could probably find something other than cake boards for the three tiers to make it cheaper.  I would also add a dowel down the center to stabilize it as kids grabbing for cup cakes aren't very gentle and this could come toppling down with out a dowel to brace it!

Let me know how it runs out.  Have a great end of summer!
