I think it’s safe to say that DIY Cake Stands are the BEST because there’s such instant gratification (for the most part). Typically it’s not a long drawn-out process like a furniture build or painting trim in a sunroom. And often you can find the parts you need for a DIY Cake Stand (or cupcake stand!) at a thrift store or flea market!

Thanks for pinning!
These are all beautiful, I have the one with the glass dome & last Christmas I put little Christmas decorations in it & placed in on a large platter with little sweets & treats around it to have after our Christmas lunch, it was a big hit. As for the ones you can buy,i I love number 5, that gorgeous green is just heaven , unfortunately it doesn’t ship to Australia boo-hoo.

I’ve pinned the geometric diamond ones more times than I can even tell you. I LOVE cake stands. That’s probably a given… but someday I’ll have a collection to display, and room to display them!
These are all lovely, and as a collector of cake stands, but not an eater of cake, (food allergies, sigh) I could find many uses for them around my house. I really like the trio from A Beautiful Mess, the novelty of them caught my fancy. These would be fun at a circus themed party. Great post!
That gorgeousness from lazy guy DIY… I’m not really a cake stand girl (its an unnecessary step between baking and eating which slows down the process)… but I’d put that in my kitchen in a heartbeat.

I love the Geometric cake stand. There is really a neat job behind it, with some research.
