There are projects that I am so very excited about that I forgo important work so that I can make them. This mini domed cake stand/cupcake stand is one of them. Like the diy ring dish tutorial I recently did for a Christmas gift, this domed cake stand is so quick and easy it’s downright shameful. So of course, I have to share the simple steps for how to make a cupcake stand (or mini-cake) with you so you can make one of your own! This will quickly become your go-to gift.
There are many wonderful tutorials for creating your own cake stands. But, this domed version is a special twist. Of course, the mini size of this stand (don’t worry, you can do a full version!) adds to the adorableness and is perfect for cupcakes. A mini domed cake stand would be a gift that most anyone would be pleased to receive especially if it comes with a cupcake! Honestly though, I’m keeping this one. I love it!
Materials needed for cupcake stand:
- small plate
- small cup, egg cup, sundae dish, or candlestick
- large bead or knob
- E6000 or similarly strong clear, waterproof glue
This is when you splurge on that beautiful bowl and plate set you saw, or the gorgeous hand painted bead you love. I went to a local store for my dish set and had a hard time choosing WHICH set to get. You could try your local thrift store and see what you can find. Or, I’m crushing on this set on Amazon (even wondering if that much could work in place of the egg cup. hmmmm…)
Note: A drawer knob will work for the top if you can remove the screw and it will still look nice. Otherwise, a large bead works well.
