There are DIY cake stands all over blog land these days, and I finally made my own. This was an extremely easy, quick project. And I loved the height/interest it added to my table of yummy food for M's birthday. Yay! I think I'll be using them often.
Put the plate face down. Glue the candlestick onto the bottom of the plate, and let it dry with something heavy sitting on top. Then with the plate still face down, spray paint the candle stick and bottom of the plate. This ensures that the top of the cake stand is still food safe. Easy!
I started out with two candlesticks the same height, but one of them ended up being crooked. And I'm glad, because I like the variety that two the different heights bring. Fun!
