Read on for some fun tips on how to get your cupcake to stand.
Plan before you begin
Planning is always an essential part of any DIY project. This not only saves time, but also keeps things within our budget. Here are some things to plan out for before making a DIY cupcake stand
First, think about your budget. This gives you a clear idea of what you can afford. In addition, you can get amazing stuff even on a budget. So don't worry about not getting what you want.
Next, draw a sketch of the cupcake stand. This will allow you to work out the raw materials and tools required for the project.
Would you like a clear base or patterned acrylic sheets? Are you interested in colored or transparent layers? Think of all design factors as this will result in a better product. Then you get to the shape, a cupcake stand looks great in both round and square shapes. However, if you are creative, you can go for the pentagon, triangle shapes, and others. If you're looking for a suggestion, we'd say the round shape looks elegant and practical for cupcakes, cookies, or cake displays.
- Time Think about how many levels you will need
Last! Are you looking for a large or average size cake stand? Do you want three or five levels? Perhaps you are looking for an 8-tier display stand to display various items. Make sure you plan out the levels before making the final purchase decision.
Buy the acrylic sheets according to the design
With the rough sketch in mind, the next step is to buy the acrylic sheets. Order them according to the design. You can also consider polycarbonate sheets, which are similar to acrylic glass. Opt for an acrylic sheet with a protective coating. That way, it stays clean and fresh even with regular use. The protective film prevents scratches and stains, so that the cupcake stand will last for a long time. Also, choose the appropriate thickness for the leaves. That way, it has the right amount of sweet treats it needs to display.
Once the acrylic sheets arrive, it's time to cut them into the shapes you want. Get the following tools to complete the project.
Use a face mask and gloves for protection. While it is safe to cut the material, the plastic material leaves some dangerous tiny pieces in the air that can cause health problems if inhaled.
Other required things:
- Acrylic sheets (for the levels)
- Hand saw (for cutting the acrylic sheets)
- Acrylic candle holder (as required)
Tie the acrylic pieces to make a layered cupcake
Once you've cut all of the acrylic sheets into the sizes you want, it's time to fix them up and create a cupcake stand in an affordable area. Place a candle holder on the bottom of each finished acrylic sheet, let it dry, and glue in place for about 10 minutes. Then place one step on top of another and attach the other end of the candle holder to the center of each acrylic sheet. Your DIY acrylic cupcake stand is ready!
You can also decorate the last piece with LED lights, fancy flowers, or other decorations to make it stand out. The LED lights create a cool atmosphere and reflect the light onto the little delicacies. Decorative flowers add character to the boring and boring cupcake stand, however. You can also add a touch of creativity by painting the acrylic sheets in your favorite colors. You can opt for neutral tones or opt for a rainbow cupcake stand with bright colors on each tier. Get the chance to enjoy the sweet treats in the best possible way!
