What if you could make one giant cake out of multiple cupcakes? You can: All you have to do is tier them like a wedding cake. No matter how simple, complex or different from one another your cupcakes may be, placing them on a tiered serving platter will give your party a beautiful centerpiece. Each layer can look the same or feature different kinds of cake or frosting. You can purchase a tiered stand or assemble your own, but make sure it's sturdy enough to handle a kid's birthday party (where there might be more than a few reaching hands). The stand can be square or circular, and the size of your tiered tower will depend, of course, on the size of your party and the number of cupcakes you're planning to serve.
