I've been mulling over making a cupcake stand for a few years now..... I finally decided to make one. I initially planned on making one out of wood, but I spied this silver plated four bowl tiered stand in my studio.... I pulled it all apart and used the bowls as a pattern to draw circles onto the MDF board that was needed to hold the cupcakes on the different layers. Here it is in all its glory~I cut circles out of foam sheets and hot glue them to help hide the circles needed to thread the center piece through the stand, this also helps to keep the circle exactly centered to the edges of each bowl. I love it... I must make some cupcakes to try it out!
