DIY Cake Stand



My baby girl’s 1st birthday is next Friday. I want to make her a three layered cake for her party. The only thing is I don’t have a cake stand. I would like to buy a glass one, but they want a lot for them. Especially because how often can one person use a cake stand. I mean to really justify getting one. So I decided to make mine own. How hard can it be right? It’s not hard at all.


10.5 inch glass plate square or round

Glass mini trifle

 Cement glue that dries clear

First be sure that the stickers are off of both your plate and trifle. You might want to use a wet rag to get them off completely.



Then flip your plate upside down. Take the skinnier end of your trifle dish. Place the cement glue all around the edge of the dish. Now place it in the middle of the plate. Top it off with a bit more glue. Now all you have to do is let it dry.




I spent a total of $5.74 on my DIY cake stand

Compare to this glass cake stand I looked at Walmart today which was $20.00.

I saved $14.26 making my own

I can’t wait to celebrate my little girl’s 1st birthday. This year has truly flown by. 

Here are a few other ideas for DIY cake stands

      Lol so funny. I think he loves that I saved us some money by making my own. Thanks for stopping by Arianne.

  • What a great idea! I’ve seen these with wooden candle sticks, but the glass with the trifle dish looks so nice!

      There are so many different ways to make these cake stands. They are also a lot cheaper to DIY then buy one. THanks for stopping by Samantha.

    Very cute! I actually found a cake plate for a couple dollars at a yard sale, but this would the second best money saving idea! 🙂

  • Cristina Steele Stauffer

    Great idea! And easy too! I hope you share a picture of the cake on it after the party! 🙂

  • Stopping by from the blog hop to say hello. Love this idea. I did something similar for a fundraising breakfast when I took small plates and glued them to small goblets to make candle holders :0)
