Who doesn’t love a good cupcake? Somehow they always seems to taste better when they’re attractively displayed. This stand is a beautiful place to stack up all those delicious treats and makes a great addition to a party table. You can easily make your own stand with just a few items from your kitchen or your local thrift store.

Materials Needed:

  • 3 plates in large, medium and small
  • 2 glass dessert cups or candlestick holders
  • Adhesive rated for glass


  1. Starting with your largest plate, center your glass cup or candlestick on top and adhere with glue. I used E6000 adhesive, but any glue rated for glass should work fine.
  2. Continue up the stand, centering plates and gluing them in place as you go.
  3. Allow the stand to dry overnight.
  4. Stack on those cupcakes and enjoy the sweetness!
