Thrifted Cake Stand

This is not an original idea at all.
I've sure you've seen lots of crafters taking glass and glue to make cake or cupcake stands.

I chose this glass plate for $.50.  It looked interesting.
I also just grabbed a candle stick for another $.50 that looked in good condition.

After throwing them in the dishwasher, I glued the candlestick to the bottom of the glass plate with Epoxy glue.  It's one of those super glues you mix then apply.  I think I found it in the paint section at Wal-Mart.


So if you're doing any holiday entertaining, $1.00 and some glue and get you a pretty little cake/ dessert stand.  I wish I had some delicious goodies to put on this for the pictures, but all I could find was a mint bite-size Milky Way--tasty, but not impressive.

I have seen this done before - but yours is the best one I have seen! Plus - cheap!

I love to make these for wedding gifts. After years of not having a cake stand, I have a wonderful custom one. So fun and easy.

That plate is fantastic!! I've yet to come across a decent glass plate. I'm on the lookout though! I usually do these with smaller plates and use them as individual cupcake pedestals!

Ok...gotta find a glass plate...that's REALLY pretty!

My sister made a small version for me to use for tea parties. It is a lot of fun. Your cake stand turned out lovely.
