Happy Friday! What's cuter than a plate of mini doughnuts?! A pretty painted cake stand with a pile of mini doughnuts on top ;). Glass stands are a classic in my mind, but they do often need a pop of color. So today, we're showing you how you can dress up a plain cake stand in just a few simple steps. It's perfect for a birthday party, baby shower, or a brunch with friends! Check it out...

You'll need...
- cake stands
- acrylic paint (Beach Glass, Camellia Pink, Chamomile)
- dry erase marker

Here's how...
1. On the top side of the cake stand, draw an outline of shape you'd like with a dry erase marker.

2. Flip the cake stand over and paint underneath, following the pattern you drew on the top. Let dry for 10 minutes and add another layer of paint as needed. Wipe off the marker on top.
3. Bake the cake stands 300 degrees F for 30 minutes. The baking melts the paint into the glass giving it more permanence to the design, and it can be hand-washed after!

Finally, use the stand for any kind of bite-sized treats! We recommend mini donuts for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! ;P Have a great weekend!
