Hey guys, sorry for being MIA yesterday. These past few days I have been trying to do too many things at once and naturally it backfired on me. Anyway, you live, you learn! Here is today’s DIY roundup with plenty of great tutorials for DIY cake and cupcake/dessert stands from Once Wed, 1 Fine Cookie , Oh Happy Day and many others.
