A Memorable Tradition & Party Idea

What is not to love about a cupcake?

You might remember, if you have been with me for awhile, that my daughters and I baked the cupcakes for my oldest daughter’s wedding. Yes, go ahead and chuckle, it was kind of a crazy idea given that we are not very skilled with baking and it wasn’t exactly the simplest idea the day before a wedding. They weren’t the most beautiful cupcakes ever, but they were one of the most memorable parts of the wedding for us. You can find the behind the scenes story of them on this cupcake post.

Continuing my cupcake crush, I have now fallen head over heels in love with these little beauties: cupcake stands. Perfectly lovely miniature cake stands. Mine happens to be pink, but white would be oh so classy too! Oh how I love these and wish we had had them for the wedding! The minute I held it in my hand,  I immediately thought of all the ways I could use it. Let me count the ways! I love versatile pieces that can be used for many purposes and can be meaningful too.

A Memorable Tradition & Party IdeaCan you believe it?
It is even cute from the bottom!
Look at those little hobnail-ish dots on the pink stand?

So, remember those “You are Special Today” plates from back in the day?

Fast forward to 2010.

I’ve decided cupcakes on stands are my new way of showing my family that they are special.

They are my new tradition.

A simple cupcake + the cutest little stand ever = you are special


PS. I used to carry these in my online shop which is now closed! Hopefully you can find them if you search online!

    They are so adorable!
    I thought of another idea: With Teacher Appreciation Week coming up, wouldn’t a special teacher love to have one of these (with cupcake of course!) on her desk in the morning? Well, it wouldn’t even have to be a cupcake…I guess it could even be a breakfast treat and coffee.

    So so cute. : )

    Love the little stands….I think it would be fun to have some on hand to give as a gift to each of my girlfriend birthday…with their very own personal cupcake.
    Great ideas.

      That is a very sweet idea Teresa! PS. I redid my post! :-)

    This is the cutest idea!! I’m always using our “special” serving dishes for even the most casual of dinners, which sometimes makes my husband raise an eyebrow, but I figure hey every day is a special occasion! I would definitely use these all the time. How cute would it be at the end of a dinner to bring out a cupcake for everyone on their own fancy stands? Definitely doing it!!

    • Melissa

      I agree, that would be so fun! :-)

    I am a cake stand addict and a cupcake addict – this is perfect! I just order myself two, one in pink and one in mint!!!

    • Melissa

      Thanks Leigh Anne!

    Love the idea of individual desserts on stands. Very cute! They’d really add interest to a tablescape. And to stack them on a larger stand for appetizer service is a great idea too. Hmm, sounds like I might need a few…

      I’m thinking I need a few more myself :-) so many ideas for how to use them!

    I love the dessert stands! Thank you for giving me ideas for use beyond dessert.

  11. Mimi

    I just love these cute little cupcake stands. I have a collection of cake stands which I use as often as I can for entertaining. I also use them in my boutique flower shop for displaying vases of flowers and small vignettes. Everything looks better on a cake stand!

    LOVE those decorative cupcake wrappers–so pretty. I heart cupcake stands as well and sell them in my shop…cupcakes just make everyone happy, in my opinion!
