In light of my husband’s birthday earlier this week, I whipped up some key lime cupcakes with cream cheese frosting — his favorite. I wanted to arrange them nicely on a cake stand on the coffee table so he’d see them when he got home. There was only one problem: We don’t have a cake stand.
It’s one of those things that you just don’t need…until you need it.
So I did a bit of rummaging, and I realized I could easily create a clever cupcake display simply by using what I already had. I took a serving platter, three of our Mason jar glasses (a wedding gift more affectionately known as “redneck wine glasses”), and turned them upside down. They were a nice height and the perfect size for holding a some sweet baby cakes.
Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for a cupcake.
