How to Make Cupcake Wedding Stand
If you want to cut down on some of your wedding costs then here are some simple instructions on how to make wedding cupcake stands.
To serve 150 - 200 people you will need two stands. For each of the stands create a four tier stand.
Start with 40cm (16 inch) board then 30cm (12 inch), 22cm (9 inch), and for the top a 15cm (6 inch) board.
You can purchase round or square boards or if you prefer a different shape you can cut these to shape using large pieces of foamcore.
Cover each of the boards with a thick foil paper. The edge of each of the boards should be trimmed neatly and cover the edges with a ribbon to match your color theme.
To separate each of the tiers you can use almost anything.
You can purchase clear vases which are strong and wide enough to support each tier, fill these with decorative stone, seashells or flower petals.
You could use sturdy flower pots and paint them in a color to match your theme.
Before the wedding check that your stand is strong enough to avoid any mishaps on the day.
You can offer more than one cake flavor to your guests by placing each flavor on its own wedding cake stand.
Let you guests know the cake flavor by placing a sign in front of each cupcake stand.
If you don't want a large wedding cake tower you can always place your remaining cup cake wedding cakes on the cake table around the stand.
