10 Creative DIY Cupcake Stands

Cupcakes have really come a long way! From cupcake toppers, to creative wrappers to delicious gourmet frostings, they have really become crowd pleasers for any event.

Kole’s first birthday is coming up in a few months and determined to not do something last minute for once, I started looking for ideas to display some cupcakes that I plan on making.

Here are 10 creative DIY cupcake displays that are easy enough for anyone to pull off.

1. Individual cupcake stands displayed on a red polka dot trunk. Don’t have a trunk? Just wrap a box in some cool wrapping paper.
