DIY Cake Stands

Last weekend I participated in the Crafty Affaire in White Rock hoping to sell some of my arts and crafts. Because it was a local show I thought I would create a hand-painted fondant mini-cake and some sugar paste cake toppers to see if I could drum up some more interest in my cake decorating. My only problem though was that I didn't have a proper cake stand to display my creations. Not to worry, a quick search on Pinterest and I found the easiest solutions to making my own cake stands.

I picked up a decorative plate and a ceramic platter along with a sundae dish and a brass candle holder to create two lovely cake stands with a little help from E6000 glue. I found out later that the platter would not be food safe so I will keep that for other displays.

What do you think? I think they turned out pretty great considering they ended up costing me about $6 each.
