DIY whimsical cake stand

Like something out of Alice in Wonderland, cake-stands made with mismatched teacups and plates can add a magical touch to birthdays, baby showers, weddings or even just a girly tea party!

Many second hand stores have great vintage plates and teacups that would be perfect for a project like this and really cheap too. so get thrift-shopping!

To make a cake-stand like the one shown here, simply use a strong glue to bond a plate, facing upwards, to the bottom of a teacup. Repeat to form a 2 or even 3-tier stand. Put your favourite plate on top as this will be where the centrepiece cake will go and won’t be covered by another tier.
