Last weekend I had the urge to make some cupcakes, a feeling I often succumb to. I was however a bit disappointed that, after the baking was done, I didn't had a nice way to present them. The sight of 12 cupcakes cramped on one plate, was just a little bit unsatisfying... And the boyfriend wasn't at home so he couldn't solve the problem by sneakily eating half a dozen behind my back.

But then I thought of the cake stands I saw on various places on the web, made out of vintage ceramics. So I decided to make my own cake stand and headed over to my local thrift store.

And this is what I came up with.

It's a very basic stand but since I love using patterned cup cake papers, I thought simple might be best. I might make a more elaborated stand in the future, but for now I'm quite happy with this basic one...

And in case the above picture made you drool all over your keyboard, you can find the recipe for the Banana Nutella cupcakes over here:

I like! What did you use for the center?
Isn't it addictive? It's just so nice and easy, very rewarding! I've gotten into the habit of picking up odd dishes and candlesticks from thrift stores and garage sales, and now i have a small army of cupcake stands. Problem is, i don't exactly need 5 cupcake stands. haha.

Thanks everybody fro the great comments!

Wrynne, the glue I used was second glue from a brand called Bison, I stole it from the boyfriend :-)

Basically I think every second glue will work, just make sure that the packaging says that you can use it for porcelain.
