DIY Cake Stand

I absolutely LOVE cake stands and apothecary jars. I feel like I could never have too many. These cake or dessert stands are so cute and make such fun and easy gifts. Perfect for taking a small treat over to a friend or a neighbor. And the best part is they are fairly inexpensive to make. I made some for my mother and mother-in-law for mothers day and placed chocolate covered strawberry's on them. YUM!
  • Candle stick (I found mine at Hobby lobby)
  • Plate (Also found at Hobby Lobby)
  • Glass dome (Found at Goodwill for 40 cents!)
  • E-6000 Glue

Be sure and wash your plate to get any sticky residue off from the stickers on there. Next take your E-6000 glue and put a thin strip of it around the top of your candle stick.
Position your plate on top of the candlestick and and put something heavy on top to keep it from shifting around while it dries. Let it dry thoroughly for at least 24 hours. I made the mistake of not doing that and as I was delivering one to someone the top fell off. It was a disaster! These seriously take about 10 minutes to make and once they are all done you can top it off with a glass cake dome.
