oooooh, thanks for sharing, sarahbmarried!  i think i may include this in my wedding shower. 

did you glue the votives/stands to the cardboard?  how do you make sure that the tiers and stands don’t move?  thank you!

You can also stop by your local baker and ask to buy cake rounds individually. That way you can get the sizes you want. I did this last year for a shower when I made a towel cake and presented it on a cardboard round and in a cake box and everything. (Oh yeah, you can buy a cake box from your baker, too.) The only thing was, since the cardboard had come from the bakery, it smelled like the bakery (delicious!), but I was putting towels on it, haha. So I had to wipe it down with a cleaning solution first. But for an actual cupcake stand that wouldn’t matter — just add to the deliciousness!

That’s a great project!

Alright I had to post this link! – There are SUPER cute cheap and easy cake stands!


 It is kind of a variation on your DIY cake stand but this one is made with a bowl and plate.  I know a dollar store here in MN that sells ceramic bowls and plates for $1 each!  Or if you want a vintage look check flea markets for older styles of dinnerware.  You could make each cake stand for $2 and they are a little sturdier!
