Every party must have sweets, be it a cake or a lot of delicious cookies or cupcakes. Or you might say that they are so important that deserve to be served separately, displayed on a stand. Cake or cupcake stands are truly a splendid way to give the dessert an honorary spot on the table, and of course, to separate it from all the salty food. If you don’t have one already or the one you have simply isn’t enough, you can make one from things around the house you already have, instead of buying a new one. Here are the top 10 cake stand tutorials for one and multiple tiered stands that will be perfect for displaying your lovely homemade desserts at your next party.
