Here is my cupcake tower tutorial! I'm sure you've seen projects like these floating around, but believe it or not, I couldn't find anything like this on the internet, which is why I made one.
- Old plates
- Old candlestick holders or something like it
- Epoxy glue
- Spray paint
- Masking tape
- Contact paper
|Yep, works great so far!|
|Got my epoxy glue. Make sure you mix the two types of glue (it's double-barreled) to make sure the glue sets properly. (Just squeeze it out and mix with a toothpick.)|
|Use your epoxy glue to adhere the candlestick holders to your plates. Tape it into place so that it doesn't move and can dry properly. Allow it to dry for 24 hours.|
|When you're done, spray paint all your pieces white. I used Rustoleum brand to make sure that the paint would stick to the metal.|
|Play with the layout until you get it how you like it.|
Are you wondering why there is suddenly a square plate in there? Well one of my plate didn't work out right the first time around when I tried to do a different design, so I opted for a plain white. I like it.)
|If you look closely, you can see that some of the lines aren't super clean. You will probably get that affect, but don't stress about it because it still looks cool! (If you use a Silhouette you might have cleaner lines.)|
|And who's gonna care when you have put your adorable cupcakes on top of them?|
In case you don't know how to make fondant cupcakes, I will be doing a tutorial on these on Thursday!
