How to create your own Americana cupcake tower
We created this cupcake tower from cardboard cake circles, small metal buckets and ribbon. Here is the complete how to so you can make your own…
First, wrap the ribbon around the edge of cake circles of different sizes, and pin it into the cardboard as you go around. We used a few different designs of ribbon in varying widths. Gingham and ric rac work beautifully for this theme. Buy as many different sizes of cake circles as you want tiers on your cupcake tower.
Next, place the largest circle on the table and top it with a bucket placed upside down. Be sure to center the bucket in the circle to keep your tower stable. You may use hot glue to secure the buckets for even more stability if needed. Place the next cardboard cake circle and the next bucket centered in the circle. This time place the bucket right side up. Follow this pattern of stacking the circles and buckets until you reach the desired height for your cupcake tower.
We added a little extra patriotic pizazz to top the Rustic Americana Dessert Skirtz cupcake wrappers with skewers of mini marshmallows, blueberries and raspberries. Just like that…you’ll have a cupcake tower that coordinates beautifully with your party. It’s easy to do, inexpensive and makes a huge impact on your table.
