Decorative cupcake stand tutorial

I love the cake stands made from teacups and adorned with fake cakes that Wendy McLachlan makes for Anthropologie.

So, when I spied some of the cupcake candle holders in the sale basket at Anthropologie my mind started buzzing with ideas! The candle holders were a bit battered and missing their candles but with a clean, soak and some replacement candles they would work just fine. I headed over to the dinnerware and played about with the cupcake candle holders with various plate, cup combo's. In the end I opted for the Fleur de Lys plate and tea cup. After making my decorative cake stand I just had to go back to Anthropologie and buy the Fleur de Lys pitcher to use as a vase. They are currently adorning my dining table.
