Wedding Cake Stand

We were lucky enough to be lent a cake stand by some family friends of ours.  It had been made for their daughters wedding a few years ago and has since been used for a few birthdays.  When it was given to us we were told we could do whatever we wanted with it.  Here it is at their wedding.....

And here it is now....

Cake Stand Revamp

Excuse the crappy photo.  It was a rainy gross day so the light was a bit sucky.  We gave it a few coats of white spray paint and trimmed each tier with some ruffle trim that I bought from Spotlight.  I am very happy with how it turned out.  I need to have a look at it with cupcakes on it though so I can see if it is too much white.  Next batch of cupcakes mum makes we are going to test it out.  If it is too white I might add a thin pink ribbon to the top of the ruffle trim.  Not too sure yet.  So 1 more thing crossed off the wedding to do list.  Only 4.5 weeks left now.  Scary!!!


  1. OMG that's so soon now! WOW! Time flies!

    Nice work on getting some handmedowns, it makes it even more special! xoxo

  2. ooh how exciting! The stand looks great, love the white :)
