I LOVE the cupcake towers! Such an individual treat. No need to worry about how large the slices will be. Everyone gets their own piece of heaven in a cup!

I would totally use this for my 30th birthday party! It would be titled “Beautiful Sweetness” and focus on a rose theme (since that’s my nickname). I was on vacation during my birthday, so it’d be nice to have a celebration with my friends while dressed to the nine’s in tea party attire!
