Sweetly Simple Centerpiece

What could make a better centerpiece than a double pedestal of cupcakes?


I had to make a treat to bring to my stamp club gathering this last weekend so I decided to make a favorite treat of mine; cupcakes!
A pedestal plate stacked on top of a vintage Fenton milk glass cake stand makes a lovely display....and an easy and sweet centerpiece!

Pink swirls of frosting, a chocolate heart and pretty brown cupcake wraps make them extra fancy!

The pedestal plate I made using a random milk glass plate and a white vase that I bought at Goodwill; some Gorilla glue holds them together.


Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday!

I like how you made your second cake pedestal. It matches perfectly with your vintage one.

What a clever idea creating your own pedestal plate! And those cupcakes look so sweet and fancy! Love your idea... I just might steal it. :-)
