On a whim, I bought a set of 24 disposable aluminum foil star-shaped cupcake-liner-thingys. I am hoping to serve them at a "congratulations" party this weekend, and write on them "you're a star" (a letter on each cupcake) I don't want to just lay them all out in a single layer on a cookie sheet, though; I'd like to do something more creative. So my question is, can you all think of any neat way to present them? Should I just buy a tiered cake stand and stack them on the layers, or should I forgo the stand and try to connect them with toothpicks into layers of their own, or would that be too messy/annoying with frosting getting on the bottoms of the cupcakes? I've never tried to make a "cupcake cake" before so I don't know how to go about it.
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
