Cupcakes and mini desserts are still a hot trend. Creative displays and presentation also help draw family and friends to the dessert table. I decided to challenge myself and extend my creativity to a blank canvas – a 3-tier cupcake stand!
I started by baking cupcakes in Wilton’s pastel baking cups. To decorate the cupcakes, I created green buttercream icing and used Tip 233 to create lots of grass. I wanted the centers to stand out, so I added a lot of green grass in the middle. It was quick and easy! I topped off the cupcakes with our Nest with Jelly Beans Royal Icing Decorations. (They are so adorable; I received many compliments!)
Next on the list was constructing and decorating the 3-Tier Cupcake Stand, and finding ways to display the cupcakes. I used our Martha Stewart Large Flower Punch and Bright Flowers Layered Accents to add spring flowers, stickers, and glitter to cardstock. I then wrapped the cardstock around the cupcake stand and taped it to the stand.
I also thought of other ways to display these cupcakes, which I plan to use for my next family event! The ideas below are a couple different ways to show off your creativity and make your friends and family unable to resist the sweet treats! What unique ways have you displayed your baked treats?
