I’m thrilled to share this oh, so easy and very pretty cake plate stand! It can be used every day or like shown here for a special occasion. Not only is making this cake plate pedestal so simple it’s also very very inexpensive! If you like shopping for gems at places like Goodwill this DIY project might be a little addictive! How about making a very sentimental cake pedestal using a plate from your great Aunt Audra or Mom Mom Margaret. You can make large cake pedestals and mini ones too. Let’s make a 10-minute cake plate stand!
How pretty is this cake pedestal? It looks quite expensive but I have a secret… it was free to me! I found a glass candlestick and a pretty glass plate in my basement… and VOILA! With the right kind of glue, you have a stunning cake plate pedestal!
Here’s how to make a glass cake stand…
- large glass plate
- glass candlestick
- e6000 industrial strength adhesive
- Turn the plate upside down on a flat surface and find the center.
2. Add glue to the top of the candlestick at the point of contact with the plate.
3. Put the glued area of the candlestick to the center of the back of the plate. Let it dry (This does take more than 10 minutes) and cure. See the glue label for instructions.
You can also use mismatched colored plates and a candlestick and spray paint it. But this would be a decorative cake plate stand only. Do not eat off of spray painted pieces.
