Apparently, I don’t have enough cake plates.
Well, besides my love for party planning and creating new hardware for them out of inexpensive items, who doesn’t want a new $2 cake plate? (Or less if you have these things on hand already!)
And to make things more interesting, I created a new ‘fluted’ cake plate. Wanna know how?
All you need is a candlestick and a tart pan.
That’s right. Dollar store stuff!
Get yourself some heavy duty glue. I love the Amazing Goop stuff. They have a special ‘craft’ glue too. Great stuff!
Add it to your candlestick.
And stick it onto your tart pan (with the lip facing down when the cake plate is up).
I added some weight just to be sure, but it’ll work either way.
Give it a day and you’ve got a new cake plate.
Of course, it’s not so pretty quite yet.
Prime it up and spray paint it a few coats of your favorite color. I used white. White goes with everything!
Never would have guessed it was once a tart pan, right!?
I love the result. And it looks great on my red hutch!
Now go make yourself one.
