I'm hosting a baby shower next weekend and I'm planning on an 8" cake with cupcakes also. I don't really have the funds to make or buy a cupcake stand. I would like to know if anyone has made one with what you have on hand like depression glass plates and platters etc. What did you use as pillars to separate your plates?
clear drinking glasses always work well. HTH
If you are not having tons...you could stack to cake plates together dif sizes will give two tiers two widths...I did this for my sister's shower and it worked well... if we started to run low I just refilled it. I had the glass pillared cake plates so it was a no cost option for me.
lhayes! Here's another WKU alumni in Louisville! Go Big Red!
flower vases with colored stones, martini or margarita glasses....
For my cousin's beach themed wedding, I helped my aunt make up wide mouthed vases filled with sand and shells.
or is that alumnus? Anyway, I bought a cake/cupcake stand from Bryant's on Fegenbush. It wasn't too pricey, and it lends itself well to either use.
Thanks guys for the speedy quick reponses. I love this place. I can always count on you.
cvoges--Love those Toppers!
I'm not familiar with Bryant's in Louisville. We have so little in cake supplies. Do they a good size inventory?
