Cake Stand

While I am on this crazy diet, I am trying to keep really busy to keep my mind off of food. You know, since I am only eating 500 calories a day.
Anyway, I'm not sure if you know this about me already... but I'm a party planner, I LOVE to have dinner parties. When you have a lot of food on a table, and you want to display it beautifully you need cake stands. They can be kind of expensive, so I decided to make some of my own. When I was at the store, I bought a few candle stick holders and a few plates. I stacked them and put a little "Gorilla Glue" on it and whala! You have yourself a pretty cake stand. I think they turned out lovely. I can't wait for my next dinner party to put them on display.
I did one 1 layer cake stand and one 2 layer tiered cupcake stand. You could do however high you want, with whatever kind of candlestick holder and plates that you want. You could have a lot of fun with it.

Ooo creative! Love it! Isn't Gorilla Glue black though? Can you see it at all after its done drying?

I went to the Beehive Bazaar and people were selling these. Adorable idea. Imagine all the quirky/awesome things available at thrift stores...endless possibilities!

This is a fabulous idea! Right up there with candles in mis-matched tea cups from the thrift store. I've always wanted to do that, by the way. Craft?
