Cake Stand



I have seen this great idea on several blogs and decided to try it out for myself. I think I even saw the idea on mommysavers. Here is another example at one blog

Sorry, I forgot to take the before but you will get the idea. It really is so simple and fun. It makes a great elegant or whimsical cake stand depending on the look you are going for. If you don't have anything on hand to make this thrift stores are a great place to find the supplies you need. The glue can be found at most grocery and or hardware stores. I found mine at Family Dollar.

What you will need:

Dinner plate
A candlestick holder, bowl or a type of vase to use as a base
Epoxy/cement glue that will work on glass

Put glue around the base of the item you are going to use for the stand part of your cake stand. I also put glue on the plate where I was going to place the stand part. Place the plate upside down so that the stand piece will dry onto the plate. Let it set 24 hours before use. You could use smaller sized plates and cups to make a cupcake holder and/or dessert tower. The possibilities are endless. These would make great gifts for dessert and party enthusiasts. You could even make them a cake or cookies on top and deliver it to the recipient.

  3. Thanks Ladies. I just happened to find this plate and stand piece at Goodwill and thought they would look great together(bowl or vase LOL) Very easy to make and yet it will look great on a table for parties or when you have visitors.

  4. Also I thought it was a bonus that the plate was made in the USA :)
