Making Cake Stands!

It is difficult finding a cake stand that isn't ugly, too small or costs a fortune! I have officially lept out of the cake stand box and discovered how to make one. Platters are much easier to find in varying colors, sizes and shapes. Buy a platter or plate you like and a candlestick, vase or bowl that matches to some degree. Walmart sells an epoxy glue called "E-6000". (In the craft area) Put epoxy on each piece, let it set for 2 minutes and place together. For full strength let your new cake stand set for 48 hrs.

This is a great way to add height and elegance to a cake!
Happy caking!


  1. Those are beautiful and so creative. I don't make cakes, but I now want to go make cake stands. -Tiffany

  2. Get creative with epoxy. I love to wander through DI or Goodwill and look at all the discarded glass and think creations up!

  3. Great idea! I've had such problems finding cake are a life saver!
