Cupcake Tower - Make your own!

I have always wanted to make a cupcake tower, but didn't have the foam or other stuff I had seen in tutorials until I came across this one. It is so easy and best of all it recycles things you already have!! Well most of it is recycled.

All you need is
cardboard (you could use and old nappy box or just a box from the grocery store),
2 - 3 cans, depending on how many layers you want (washed and dried)
Pretty paper
Ribbon or whatever you would like to use to decorate (no ribbon on mine)
Cupcakes
A plate and bowl for your stencil
Scissors
Glue



All I did was get a dinner plate and bowl to trace around for the levels. The plate was the bottom level as it was larger. I traced around it on the cardboard and cut it out.

I did the same with the pretty paper and glued it to the cardboard.

With the tins I cut the paper to size and glued it on to cover them up.



I put a shorter tin on the bottom, then the large cardboard layer, followed by the taller tin and the final layer.

My little cupcakes were made in reusable silicone moulds, hence no patty cases. They are decorated with little icing Easter eggs.

It was so quick and simple to make. You could make one for any occasion and it would be great!
