You will need

  • Super decorated cupcakes from every child in the class / group. You can download templates below.

  • Scissors or punching knife – with thick cardboard it’s hard to cut with scissors, so then a knife will come in handy.
  • Glue
  • White or gold acrylic or poster paint
  • Brush
  • Black marker or acrylic paint marker
Preparing a gift for a teacher - a plate full of cupcakes

Prepare paper cupcakes

The first step is to collect decorated cupcakes from all kids. This year it went smoothly. I provided the parents with the prepared templates and after a week I got cupcakes from the whole class.

There are 2 templates to choose from:

Preparation of a paper cake plate

To make a cake plate, the easiest way is to arrange the cupcakes and then sketch the shape, remembering about the base at the bottom and the handle at the top. It looks better when the distances between the plates are even. Additionally I suggest leaving a base for each cupcake as those cut from a regular sheet will bend.

Paint the platter before cutting it out. I originally planned a white one, but I got a golden paint and it stood on gold 🙂

After the paint is dry, you can start cutting. Reinforce the critical places with additional pieces of cardboard.

Finally, I added a black border to make the bottom of the plates look wavy.
