I've added this to my favourites. I love the beautiful cupcake stands. And the cupcakes are so perfect! Very pretty. Stunning, actually.

oops...1/3 of cupcakes were Fresh Lemon Cake, 1/3 of cupcakes were Tahitian Vanilla and 1/3 were Dark Chocolate. ALL with Grand Marnier buttercream.

Thaks everyone! It took me 3 hours to bake off all the cupcakes and about 2 hours to ice them smoothly. I buy really large cupcake papers and fill them about 1/3 cup with my batter. They bake up to just under the tops, about 1/3" short. Then I pipe in some buttercream and smooth it flat with a palette knife.

no, not yet...but after scouring the web for nice ones, it is something I think I will definitely be doing one day! Anyway, this was a copy of a Martha Stewart stand made by a local carpenter in MDF. Huge stand of 36" x 36" x 24" tall!!! Holds 140 large cupcakes.
