Etceteras: halloween cake stands

I was inspired by these kirigami cut outs. They’re so pretty and each one is like a snowflake – unique. You can find these on the blog Omiyage.

I’m going to try to make some pretty flowers and snowflakes with colorful paper but in the meantime, I thought I could use this same process to make spider webs for Halloween. I used baking parchment paper to make spider web doilies to serve up Halloween treats.

The two smaller cake stands are small plates on top of candle holders. I’m sure you’ve seen this done before. Search the blogs and you’ll find some amazing cake stand creations. Just make sure you securely glue the plate to the candle holder.


For the large cake stand, I simply cut out a piece of black and white fabric with pinking shears.


Touches of color with an orange gros rain ribbon or fall candle and you have a simple Halloween treat display.

Now I need to go bake some treats to put on those empty plates.
