DIY Cupcake Rack Out Of Coat Hangers

Nov 8, 2010 by

I’ve always wanted a cupcake rack… I figure having one will make me less lazy about making cupcakes XD Obviously not the case in reality but I still set about making myself one anyway!

So This is my final product, I didn’t have any cupcakes so James’ scones and a felt cupcake had to do for modeling XD

Now it’s time to make the bits to hold the cupcake! Take each end of each tier and using the pliers create a spiral like this:

You want the bottom of the spiral to be flat like a circle so the cupcake base has something to sit on. Then it curves up and around to hold the cake in place.

Next cut the extra of the pole off the top, I also glued 2 hooks in place there so I could transport it easily. So you end up with something like this:

Now let’s clean it up a bit. Using yarn I wrapped it around the center pole to disguise all of the glue ^_^

Then I added some blue trim to make it match the rest!

Lastly to disguise the joins I added some pretty bows ^_^ I also glued beads to ends of each of the tier to finish them off!

And there we go, finished!

So there you have it! Very quick and easy to do, if you’re ever having a tea party and you’re in a bind for cupcake displays it’s time to bust out some coat hangers! XD
