Cake stands are beauty to me. Not only do they serve as a vehicle for delicious desserts, but they’re multi-functional too: fruit platter, soap dish, front entryway “stuff” holder… the possibilities are endless.
But, what is not so lovely about them are the price. At Macy’s the Martha Stewart platters start at $60 – yes, you’re buying the name “Martha Stewart” but $60 for a plate and stand? A bit much if you ask me.
So, when I saw that my lovely friend, Barbara, had come up with an easy – and inexpensive – way to make a cake stand I was all over it. And, even better, this way allows you to customize your platters – different sizes, colors, motifs – you name it, it’s possible.

2. Put your plate bottom side up. Apply a thin layer of glue to the rim of the candlestick and place on plate in the center. Reinforce candlestick by running glue along the outside rim too.
