{Tutorials} DIY Cake/Cupcake Stands-Cute & Inexpensive to Make

We've found some very easy and inexpensive Cake and Cupcake Stands that you can make. Some use plastic, others wood. You could even use glass, ceramic, stone, mirrors or melamine plates. Most supplies can be found at The Dollar Store or thrift stores. Some we have shared on our facebook page before but I wanted to have all these great ideas in a blog post so you could refer back to it when you're ready to design. You don't have to buy expensive serving dishes....just check out what everyone else is making theirs out of and make one, or some, for yourself.
