30th Birthday Party Cupcakes & Homemade Cupcake Stand

This past weekend we held a 30th Birthday Party for my friend Bekka. I had a great time making the cupcakes. The 30's and B's on top are made from Candy Melts. I melted them in a plastic ziploc baggie and then piped the letters and numbers onto wax paper. I think they turned out really cute. We also made our own cupcake stand by stacking different sized boxes and then wrapping them with silver wrapping paper and ribbon.
We had a Hollywood theme complete with a red carpet and Hollywood Walk of Fame. Bekka loves the Twilight Series, so our friend Kristy made sure that Edward was at the party too!
What a fun night!


  1. You are so clever! I love your homemade cupcake stand!

  2. Very cute cupcakes!!! I love the idea of making the numbers out of candy melts! (can work for kids' bdays too!) I think it's so fun to write in chocolate/white chocolate and peel away the design. That sounds like such a fun bday party; I'm sure she loved it!

  3. Great job! The stand came out perfect. Can't wait to see what you come up with for your husbands B~day! My husband still plays flag too!!! He coaches our boys for flag as well. I guess it's just in their blood;o)
