As you might have noticed from some of my other wedding related posts (here, here & here) we didn't have a very traditional wedding. I'm not a big fan of cake... and I couldn't justify spending LOTS of money on a pretty cake that would have to be served by our caterers. We wanted a more casual, "help yourself" feel so we ended up with cupcakes. It was such a good choice - they were a hit! (and totally affordable).
To make them look a little prettier, I made cake stands - lots and lots of cake stands!
Here's what you'll need to make your own:
epoxy glue or E6000
Lay out your collection of plates and candle holders until you find configurations you like. Don't be afraid to do 2 or 3 tiers!
Take your cake stands to a well ventilated area, lay down some newspaper to protect the surface you're working on, and begin glueing your candle holders to the underside of your plates. Allow the plates to cure AT LEAST for the time the epoxy suggests (if not longer).
Practice your table settings a few days before the wedding (or other party).
Enjoy your fun and unique display of delicious treats.
