Cake Stands

I wanted some cake stands to use at the baby shower I am planning for my sister.  I looked all over the place and found a few, mostly ranging from $20-$25. Since I wanted 3, those were a bit out of my price range.  I looked online and found a few 3 piece sets in that same price range, but about half the reviews said that they arrived broken into a thousand little pieces and I didn't want to chance it. 

Pat took me to look around at Tai Pan for one, and they had a few that were still too expensive.  Then we had a brilliant idea.  We'd make our own!  We found some white platters for $4 each, and then found a few other white dishes of various sizes and shapes to make stands out of.


The total of everything cost just over $22.00.  Then we made a stop at Lowe's and spent an additional $5.00 on epoxy.  So for a total of about $27.00, I got my three cake stands.  I think they turned out great!

I love your cake stands. I make myown as well. I am making some this week for a bake sale to sell with the cakes. I really love the white and the clean look of them. usually I go to the DI or walmart to find a good match for my pieces. The dollar store has a lot of good choices as well.
