Ideas For A Beautiful Homemade Cupcake Stand

This birthday cake for my nieces first birthday was constructed  using an 18 inch silver stand as the base of the cupcake stand.

The cupcakes are scattered all around and on top of the base to give the illusion of three tiers. The small 6 inch cake is on top of 7 inch plastic pillars and plates by Wilton.

Simple and beautiful!

Olivia's Birthday Cupcake Cake

The silver cake plateau with gold stands from the photo at the top of this page are the ones in this photo above.

Olivia's birthday bellydance party cupcakes. They were made using one of my  all time favorite recipes  on this website,  and pink colored vanilla buttercream with Oreo cookies crushed on top and a drizzle of chocolate.

The crowning glory is the decorative chocolate which goes on last. These would be beautiful for a wedding celebration as well. Directions below on how to use this simple cake decorating technique.


How to make a simple chocolate decoration for cupcakes

Written Instructions

Make a paper cone using parchment or waxed paper, or a plastic bag with the corner snipped to make a tiny hole. Place a piece of waxed paper on the table and squeeze the chocolate out onto the paper in various patterns. You will see in the video below how to make a paper cone.

Put the waxed paper with the chocolate designs on it into the freezer for a few minutes until it hardens. Peel the paper away from the chocolate being careful not to handle it too much. The pieces can be gently pushed into the icing.

TIP: work quickly so the chocolate does not get soft and then return the cupcakes to the refrigerator as soon as possible after placing the decorations on.
