HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CAKE STAND…

Beautiful cake stands are everywhere at the moment, but they can cost quite a lot of money. So make your own, it’s very easy.

All you need are two (or three) plates, a central rod, washers and a handle to hold it all together and bobs your uncle.

You can buy cake stand fittings from Amazon from £10.99, to around £19.89.

If it’s a two tier cake stand you want to use a dinner plate and a side plate. Measure the diameter of the largest plate and mark the centre with a pen, then do the same with the smaller plate.

There is a great post on Pinterest from Instructables Crafts on exactly how to make your 3 tier cake stand.

You can also go for an even easier one like this one from Duke Manor Farm where it explains that for the tops use an old glass plate and a small glass plate that if you do not have in could be picked up from anywhere. The glue is the most important bit as the last thing you want is for it to fall over. One of the best ones is
LOCTITE Super Glue 3g tube Especially for Glass.

The building of your cake stand is simple just like the images show from Duke Manor Farm. Simply turn your plate upside down. Apply your glue to the bottom rim of the plate. Place your candle holder to the rim and let it dry for a few minutes. That’s it. Easy.
