Cupcake towers add that perfect bit of dazzle to a table. I opted for 3 tiers on mine; the bottom is a giant platter I used just so the cupcakes didn’t have to sit on the table.
Frog Prince Cupcake Tower – it was DIY!

The cupcake wrappers and toppers added even more personality and personalization to the display. These cupcakes were made at home, and I used the best buttercream frosting ever from Billy’s – check it out here. The frosting was stiff enough to stand up on its own without having to make a meringue. I sprinkled little pearl candies on top for a finishing touch.
The structure itself was a stroke of brilliance. While I’d like to take credit for this bit of genius, I can’t. And I can’t believe I can’t find the blog post I found it in! At any rate, all this is is a few cake circles I covered in paper to match the rest of the party, and a few soup cans wrapped in paper all stacked up. Just a tip if you’re going to this — make sure your soup cans are full and unopened. The weight is what keeps it together! You can find pre-cut cake circles in the cake decorating aisles at WalMart, Michaels, or JoAnns or any similar store. It was a good alternative to a tower that would have to be stored after I used it!
