- Wedding: December 2012
I knew I did not want to spend a ton of money on one big cake with (usually) one cake flavor. So, to fix that problem, I decided to get family friends (who I know can bake a mean cake) to bake 10-12 different, normal sized cakes.
I then decided that each cake should have its own stand. You know as well as I do that any normal, glass cake stand can be semi-pricey ($10+, gets pricey when doing 10-12 cakes). Luckily, my wedding isnt super matchy matchy so this works for me. If you wanted to match, you could try and get all of your supplies to match but I will leave you with that decision.
Materials: I found all supplies (other than glue) at GoodWill for less than $3.00 a piece.
– Apoxy Glue (~$4 at Hobby Lobby) *Caution: Very strong scent wise, use in a very open room*
– Candle stick, vase, glass, anything with a wide bottom
– Plate (Glass, plastic, metal, etc.)
How you do it:
1.) Make sure all surfaces are dry.
2.) Match up and place where each plate and candle stick (or whatever you use) is going to go.
3.) Remove plate, apply glue to stick, place plate on top. You might want to turn it upside down so gravity will help you make it stick OR leave it how it is and add something heavy to the top of it and leave it as is…same effect, different methods
4.) let sit 24 hours, WALA! **Plase disreguard the stain on the counter (WHO HAS WHITE COUNTERS?! The people who own this house (we rent) are crazy to think that is functional) and my donations to my wine centerpiece collection
