mini donut cupcake stands

donuts? check.
cupcake stand? check.
easy? check.

wanna see what i'm talking about? 
check.
ok ok so i had to kinda sorta hide these from hubby cuz i have waaay too many cake stands already and have become seriously obsessed with them but when i saw these, i kinda sorta broke down and rethunk my financial status to rationalize getting these non needed but well ok, 
really needed mini stands.
so don't tell anyone in my neighborhood that i bought them all...
and i probably would've gotten more if there were more available but 4 was all they had.

i bet craft people hate me when i go into craft stores cuz i tend to buy everything and leave nothing for them.
oops.

but i gotta keep crafting to keep my sanity from work and everyday life y'know?
and with the new stuff i buy, i also gotta use my old stuff up so hubby will think 
"gee she's in that (craft) room an awful lot. well, guess it's good she is using up the stuff in there...wonder why the heck it never looks like there is a lack of supplies though?..."

these are the times i don't mind 
that he doesn't read my blog.
seemed like rust-oleum was easiest to control and covered more in one spray. 
valspar came a close second.
krylon had a very stubborn cap to remove and i had to do multiple sprays and it dried the slowest. or is it cuz i had this spray the longest? i have no clue. 

but that's just my silly opinion. 
cuz why would anyone use rust-oleum on a cupcake stand anyway?

hey who said that?!?
..................
let's just get another craft supply that i have and that you have seen here on this blog many times before.
oh how i LOVE paint markers.
i just have more control over them to make better details as opposed to the million paints and brushes i have that cry out to me from neglect. and the drying time beats paints anyday. not to mention the vibrancy of the colors.

ok i'll move on...

and just when i thought making donuts on the 1st three was getting a little redundant, 
i made this:
i gotta admit this was my first time makin' them.
anyway, i put them all together and:
or a mini donut in a cupcake liner.
or a cookie or whatever treat can fit.
just make sure it's not sitting directly on the stand unless you like food poisoning.
that i would not recommend.

oh me likey. especially the size of them.
oh and one more thing to say,
that's so true.

so donut go away. like ever.
cuz i donut like the fact that you may not return.
and i donut want that to ever happen cuz you donut want to miss what i plan on making next, 
whatever the heck that will be since i donut have a clue.

cuz we have lots and lots of fun together.
donut you think?

  1. Oooo...those are really cute! I'm still looking for my big cupcake stand. BTW-how do those paint markers stand up to washing?

    1. thank you so much Erlene! as far as the washing goes, i would recommend just wiping it with a clean damp cloth because food should not be in contact with these stands anyway. paint markers do stand up to hand washing if you bake them first-there are many tutorials on sharpie mugs on the web. i never tried dishwashing them so i can't say! i hope you find your cupcake stand! i hate when that happens! lol :)

  2. I donut know what to say! These are a HOLE lot cuter than anything I've seen! Especially since as a kid I was teased by being called DONUT. Cuz my name is Dona......not Donna....Dona....long 'o', short 'a'. Get it? Like donut without the 't'. Dona-t. And leave it to my BBFF to name something after me!!!!!! I'm blessed.

  3. I am so happy that you 'don't' live near me ... maybe some supplies will be left at the Michael's that I'm going to shop at today, LOL! Glad I'm not the only person obsessed with pedestal stands ... last count for is 14 and I gave away 2 to a girlfriend ... she's basically storing them until I want to borrow back :) Must make these ... don't have donut stands, only cake and cupcake stands ;)

  4. OMGosh I am holding my breath that these cute little items will still be at Michaels's when I go there next - I donut wanna come home empty handed! They are darling! And that price! Wow! How cute to have these at place settings to really showcase your cute desserts!
    Loved the story about poor hubby scratching his head over why the supply of goodies never seems to go down even tho you are in there crafting away every single spare moment! The only time I got caught was when I was asked why the plastic bag drawer had so many Michael's, HL and JoAnn bags in it since "they don't sell groceries!" Yikes. I just skadoodled away!
    and btw - your commenters are often just as funny as you are! I like the HOLE blog from top to bottom - donut want to miss anything!

  5. Those are adorable! I appreciate the tip about Rustoleum, filing that away in my brain for future reference. I sure hope Michael's has them online, since I don't have a Michael's for hours away! Great job, they turned out soooo cute!

    1. oh my gosh Michelle i would probably die if Michaels was a few hours away from me! i would drive there when an empty truck and return with it completely full. of course i would have to save for years just to go there then or not buy groceries for a month! lol :>D happy you like them!

  13. I don't want to cast any aspersions on your family (I'm not really worried about my own), but I think we may secretly be sisters. So, it's not creepy for me to say that I love you, and that if I had a real blog it would probably look and sound just like yours. It's ok to say all of that, because, you know, we're probably family.
