DIY Cupcake Stands

IMG_1055Returning to the wedding theme, it's time to address the question of cake. Our friends and aunt, Kirsten, Natalie and Joey, generously agreed to make cupcakes, which would happily tide our guests over until dinner. But it seemed shockingly expensive to find attractive cake stands to hold 140 cakes! So I gathered together the plates on offer at local charity shops, along with the eternal selection of glassware they seem to provide, and made my own. IMG_1057Warning - using cheap superglue worked well enough to get through, but they are not the strongest items in the kitchen!
