Towers are such a fun way to display your cupcakes, but I know – it’s one of those things you might not want to invest in, or you might forget about it until the last minute and need a quick fix… or maybe you’re just really good with a glue gun and want to make your own! Well, I just found a fantastic step-by-step tutorial at Annie’s Eats. Annie came up with this method herself for her son’s birthday party and says it takes about a half hour to put the whole thing together.

The basic supplies include styrofoam discs (or another wide, sturdy base), soup cans, cardboard cake circles, and some paper and ribbon. So simple – so crafty!

Check out the full tutorial and lots more step-by-step photos at Annie’s Eats!
