Holly's Ballet Themed 3rd Birthday- Part Four (Cake Stand and Ballerina Cupcakes)


The decor for the party was pretty simple- lots of pink and white decorations.
But, my favourite set-up was the food table.

Remember this cake stand that I made for a friend's babyshower a while back?
Well, I saved it and decided to re-cover it for Holly's birthday:

Ah, so very pink! Again, I used the same scrapbooking paper that I used for the invitations and the cupcake toppers to cover the inner beams, and bought some new pink ribbon to do the outer edges. I added the bows last minute, and I'm glad I did.
Isn't it amazing what a glue gun can do?

Next, I moved on to the cupcakes.

After finishing my DIY ballerina cupcake toppers, I started frosting!

I used a Wilton drop flower tip to make a nice swirl, and then added an extra tall swirl in the centre (for where the ballerina would be placed). Next, I sprinkled on some pink Wilton sugar pearls and pressed in my ballerinas.

I repeated in chocolate, of course.

...and then I finally got to put them on my cake stand!



  1. I love that cupcake stand! I'm considering just doing cupcakes instead of a big cake this year so I'm definitely going to have to try this out. :)

    Love, Jazmyn
