I have been searching for cupcake towers for my daughters birthday and found nothing I liked that wasnt $60 per tower. So after many sites of tutorials I decided to purchase things to make my own.
$11 at Goodwill. 4 silver type platters and 2 candlesticks
$11 at Joannes one can of primer and one can of white spray paint.
$3.99 for E-6000
Wash and dry the platters and candlestick removing any glue. Spray 2 light layers of primer, flip and repeat. Make sure you are protected from any wind or it WILL overspray.
Once pieces are completely dry. measure and mark the center of the plates with a piece of tape. Apply glue to top of candlestick. this will go on the bottom of the top plate to provide more strength to the upper platter. The smaller (top) of the candlestick will be attached to the middle of the bottom platter. This will allow for more room on the bottom platter for cupcakes.
The cupcakes wont touch the actual stand and I will cut a liner to provide an extra layer of protection.
