I made my own one dozen cupcake tower today. I've seen them done and I need them so I finally got it together and did one. Easy peasy. Total cost less the center because I had that already was about 7.50. So many different things you can do when making them, I just wanted to do a quick one. I learned a few things 1) have everything clean, with alcohol preferably, 2) make your placement of glued items exact ( I use Locktite glue and once it touches, it doesn't move) You can add flowers or marbles pretty much anything to the center portion if you desire. You can buy new or use items purchased garage sales, so many different things you can do. Anyways here is the one I did in about three minutes.
