Alternative Wedding Cupcake Stand

Sometimes the only way to get exactly what you want is to make it yourself. We've decided to serve cupcakes at our wedding instead of a traditional wedding cake, and so it came to my attention that we'd need something to serve them on. You can of course buy a cupcake "tree", but I just felt they looked to "wedding-ey". Taking into consideration the laid back nature of the event and our undeniable hipness, I decided that the only acceptable thing to serve the cupcakes on would be a stand made from old vinyl records. DIY time!

It's a good thing that I'm somewhat crafty and my man is very handy - this project proved to be a piece of cake for us (pun intended). Hopefully some better pictures of it (with cupcakes) will be taken at the party, but for now I give you the mothership of frosted confections, the turntable of tantalizing treats, the tower of flour...okay, you get the idea.

Yes, the disco ball spins. Our only regret is that we can't make the whole apparatus turn continuously. We didn't really have time to make that happen, and we can't set it on an actual record turntable because the holes in the records will be threaded through. Oh well.


  1. Ok, so that is super cool. It looks like your wedding will be so fun. Wish we could make it!

  2. Check back in a week - this one may be available! It's cool and all, but I'm already wondering what on earth I'll do with it after the party...

  3. Excellent job and congrats! I know it's been a while but by any chance, do you still have this and are you willing to sell?
