I have seen this idea in a few different websites/magazines and couldn't wait to try it myself. It's so versatile and way easy.
Here's how you make your own cake stand.
This one was made from a little girls tea set. Cute, huh?
And why stop with glass? Make some colorful plastic ones for a birthday party or some holiday ones would be pretty.
I plan on using mine at a future church function. Can't you just see cute cupcakes displayed on all of them?
