We love making funky cupcake stands for our displays at the Scoop. Duck tape is cheap and comes in so many fun colours and patterns that it is easy to create the perfect stand. We've used camoflague for hunting themed cupcakes and pink for princess cupcakes and of course the red for Canada Day cupcakes.
Even better they are re-usuable - need to re-theme - just re-tape the cake dummies with a different colour or pattern.
- Coloured Duck Tape
- Styrofoam Cake Dummies (we used 4" round dummies)
- Royal Icing
- Cake Boards (we used 7", 9" and 11" boards in the stand pictured).
Cover the styrofoam cake dummies with the duck tape of your choice.
Use the Royal Icing to "glue" the pieces together. Once you have all the pieces attached let the icing harden. Normally this will take about 12 hours but... if the weather is wet you might want to give it a full 24 hours to harden.
