Cake stands are an elegant way to display decadent desserts and more – I have come up with a simple and inexpensive way to make your own! The possibilities are truly endless with this project!
You will need:
- 2 – Candle Holders (I used tapered ones I had on hand, ones with a bigger base recommended)
- Hot Glue
- Modge Podge OR Elmers School Glue – must dry clear
- Glitter – really fine grade glitter, such as Martha Stewart. Course/large glitter won’t give the same effect.
- Battery Operated Micro LED Lights (optional) – these can be purchased inexpensively at Amazon.com in a variety of colors – white, blue, red, green, pink, and yellow
Watch the video tutorials for step-by-step instructions.
(Safety Update: After the video was filmed, we discovered that gluing the cake stand to the bottom of the platter/plate is a much safer idea than what was mentioned in the video. It provides an even more stable base IF you have small tapered candle holders as used in the video. If your candle holders have a LARGE base, then you can go ahead with the no-slip hot glue method and no permanent gluing to platter/plate is necessary)
