Cupcakes don’t grow on treesNeither does money, so I decided to do the d.i.y. route (to a certain degree) with my cupcake tower/tree. Plus, it’s recyclable. But you can definitely build yours out of things like styrofoam cake forms and stuff, if that’s your cup of tea. To decorate it, I ordered these large sheets of wrapping paper with maps of Italy on them. Since the Mr. is Italian, so I thought this would be a great little way to celebrate his heritage. So here’s how to do it: I took the rounds for each tier, traced, cut, and glued the paper onto them.

I then painted the little “lifts” for each level black, since it would fade into the background.

Next I glued a cord trim around each round tier. Then I glued black velvet ribbon to each tier lift that was facing outward (to cover the corrugated cardboard ugliness).

Total time: 1 hour. Total cost: +/- $60 So don’t buy or rent your cupcake tree - make yourself a pretty, personalized one! Here is a decorated cupcake tower from Kristina!
