DIY: Mini Cake Stand

Having a Spring / Easter / ANY party?  Love cake stand DIYsShaken Together's blog has an absolutely adorable mini cake stand that we don't think they could have made easier if they had tried!  We love the simplicity, but the beauty of this project.  

Be sure to head to their blog for more info and more DIY!

I purchased two inexpensive sets of solid colored dishes - one granny smith apple green and one black - inverted the cereal bowls, attached the dinner plates with scrapbooking glue dots (super sticky and easily removed) and my cake plates were born!! 
Here they are in action - sorry, this was the first picture I could find without digging out my CD of hundreds of pictures! 

We made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with home made buttercream and offered chocolate jimmies, green sugar, coconut and mini chocolate chips ... it was a hit!
 
These would be sweet made with thrift store finds for a Mothers' Day tea, heritage dishes for an anniversary party or fun brightly colored mix & match plates and bowls for your kiddo's birthday party ... use the coffee mugs and salad/dessert plates for smaller cake stands with a little more quirky character :)  The best part is that they can be whipped up in a pinch and stored easily!
Hope you were inspired to {try this}!  And hope you want to hang around a while!  There are lots of ways to follow along ... check out my side bar.  I'm hosting a weekly Pinterest link party, too - scroll up to the top to stop by this week's party!  And I'll be sharing the amazing brownie recipe pictured above in the very near future ... you definitely don't want to miss it!
