don't laugh, but what I've done is use particle boards and canned vegetables (with the vegetables still in the can)... wrap the boards in fanci foil and take the wrappers off the canned goods and wrap them in ribbon. There's a pic of one in my photos. icon_smile.gif

did you just glue the can to the boards? and what type of glue did you use? im so paranoid that ill go to put the cake on top and cupcakes on and it will just fall apart!! haha lol

Believe it or not, i DIDN'T glue them, though I though about using the hot glue gun. Leaving the stuff in the can keeps it heavy which makes it more substantial and durable. We even tested it by piling stuff on just one edge to see how much weight it's hold, and then knocked and kicked the table a few times. Didn't fall. I was actually really impressed, cuz i"ve purchased cake and cupcake stands that when the table is tapped everything comes falling down. Plus with these, you can make custom sizes, heights, etc, and decorate them differently each time

I used a bought cupcake stand and stuck a cake board to the top with that double sided sticky foam stuff! It was very sturdy in fact i had a nightmare getting it off!! The top cake was 6 inch i think? You can see it on my daughter's butterfly cake. Saved me buying a whole new stand anyway - they are so hard to find!
