I was recently invited to a fun gift exchange party where we each made 10 gifts to give away to one another…kind of like a cookie exchange but less calories 😉 LOL
I decided to make these little White cake stands!

How to make the Cake Stand
I knew I was going to be short on time because the party was right after Thanksgiving so I had to make something simple but nice. I looked in my favorite shopping places… Tai Pan Trading and Ikea. I found the scalloped edge tart pan (at a shop that no longer exists 🙂 Tai Pan for less than $3.00 each!
The bottom is a candle stick from Ikea for less than $5.00 each.
I used this very strong, powerful, highly odor-iffic smelling glue that worked perfectly!! (Make sure you do this outside) I sanded the edges of the candlesticks to rough up the paint finish so that the bond would be really strong.
You simply attach them and let dry overnight.
I love the simplicity of this and yet the elegance of it. I think the gals at the gift exchange loved getting these. Fun and easy and useful gift don’t you think? Maybe your looking for a larger cake plate, maybe you remember another cake plate that I made out of wood?
You could serve cookies on your pedestal cake plate at your next cookie exchange to elevate them to the next level or use it as your centerpiece like I did here in my simple Fall Tablescape using marigolds
Hope you are all enjoying your holidays so far.
