Here are a couple of my favorite cake stands that I 've come across through Internet browsing:
|stenciled wood plaque cake stand|
|Colorful recycled object cake stands|
|Painted recycled glassware cake stands|
|cut wood cake stand|
|Blue plywood and dollhouse trim cake stand|
I added swirl design to the second cake stand using silver and gold Sharpie markers on the underside of the plate and candle stick base. You can put in oven at 200- 250 degrees F for 2 hrs for marker to set permanently. Its recommended to do outside or underside so the cake stand is food safe. You could take things a little further and spray paint the clear glass candle stick to coordinate with the top plate. Only paint areas that will not touch food. Spray paint is not food safe. Hand washing your cake stand is highly recommended.
As I mentioned before, I love to make these! I think they look great to serve cake, muffins, cupcakes, etc on. You can make them various heights, colors to use on the same buffet. I love the mixture of bright summer colors. Since they are so cheap to make you can make many colors to match various decor, dishes, or Holiday decor. We are getting ready for a few birthday parties in the next few weeks. Stay tuned to see how I use them.
