Edward Cullen Twilight Cupcake Stand

edward cullen vampire cupcake stand

If you are a fan of Twilight, then you’ll love this spooky and sparkly vampire Edward Cullen cupcake stand! As soon as I saw this Martha Stewart dripping border at my local Joann, I just knew I had to buy it and make a cupcake stand with it! I just think it turned out so bloody fun!

If you visit my blog often, you may remember that I did a candy corn cupcake stand very similar to this a few weeks ago. I made that cupcake stand and this one at the same time and I’ve been anticipating showing you this version…I just had to make the perfect bloody cupcake to go on top to match the stand! Didn’t it turn out cute?

But before I start, here’s a little list of Twilight-inspired cupcake recipes I found you may like that will make the perfect topper to my cupcake stand!!!

5. Attach sequins with Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue® around the entire CD, covering up the gaps where the trim meets the paper (I love to be able to hide project flaws this way!!)

6. Attach wooden candlestick to the base of the stand. Let dry and enjoy your cupcake stand!

Doesn’t the blood drip trim look amazing?!?

Here’s a detail of the silver sparkly sequins adorning the sides of the stand in honor of Edward! I hope I made him proud with this project!

Oh, and for the way the cupcake looks, all I did was use sparkly red gel icing. I poked two holes on top of the cupcake ad let it drip down. I kinda love how it dripped onto the paper. Makes this project have extra blood-sucking appeal!

Until next time Swellions!

You may remember a couple years back the CD cupcake stand project that I made for Terrorific Tuesday. Well, I wanted to revisit this project and make it even easier on myself. I’m all about the easiest way to make something cute. Here’s how you make it…and the coolest part is that it is recycling an old CD!
