Cake Stand Ideas:
If you are the type of person that enjoys to throw a party, then you most likely have some sort of “celebration box” or shelf in your closet that’s devoted to celebration products. I had a party shelf, after that a box, after that 2 boxes, after that a lot more shelves, so I determined it was time to scale down a little bit and keep the size a little bit extra workable. One point that was using up a great deal of area was serving recipes for cakes/desserts. So I assumed it would possibly be a great idea to have a couple of short-term cake stand concepts handy so I can still have display screen choices for events, but keep less products in my party box the remainder of the year. Below’s a few of my favorites:
Make a stand out of cardboard and paper: For this stand I bought two dimensions of round cardboard cake boards (in the baking section of the majority of craft stores) and utilized an adhesive gun to attach scalloped bulletin board boundary trim around the sides. Then, I cut 2 pieces of round foam (one much shorter for all-time low and also one taller for the top), covered those in the same color paper and glued them onto the cake boards to produce tiers.
Utilize a scalloped pie or sharp frying pan: If you like cake stands with frilly edges, attempt using a sharp, quiche or wavy-edged pie pan as the top of your cake stand. Just pick up an affordable candlestick owner at your local dollar shop for the base as well as repaint it to match whatever color your pie tin is. Make use of some gallery putty to develop a solid (however temporary) bond in between both while you utilize it as a cake stand. Then you can separate the products and also utilize them for their initial objective again as soon as the event is over.
Make a plastic cake stand: One trip to the dollar shop and also you can snag a plastic a glass of wine glass (or margarita glass for a bigger base) and also plastic plate or battery charger to temporarily sustain your cake work of art. Simply hot adhesive the base of the glass to the underside of home plate, spray paint if preferred, and also you’re ready to add your deals with ahead!
Use terra-cotta pots: For this stand, select a little, yet high, terra cotta pot and also adhesive it to the bottom of the dish for a much larger pot (you can turn the saucer over or utilize it appropriate side up if you want ridges on the sides of your stand). You can leave the all-natural surface on the terra-cotta, or you can repaint the pot with a white primer spray initially and after that repaint it any kind of color you desire.
Turn items you currently have right into a cake stand: Given that you can use a removable adhesive like museum putty (or perhaps sticky tack functions quite well) to briefly join items, attempt using a plate that you already have (possibly with a pattern or image) as the top of your cake stand. You can connect it to an inverted container, mug or candlestick owner, and then return all products to their rightful place once the event is over. Good!
Just bear in mind, if you are serving something that’s not currently in a wrapper (like a cupcake), you may not wish to put food straight on non-food safe surface areas. So just utilize wax paper or another thing below the food when offering. As well as when the event is over, make certain to recycle any kind of components of your stands that you’re not maintaining.
I’m so grateful that there are lots of charming alternatives for quick and also short-term cake stands. Currently I can have a little bit even more breathing room in my event materials without needing to endanger on design when the following event comes around. Have you made cake sticks out of anything uncommon? xo. Laura
