~~Cake Stand Tutorial~~

Materials Needed:

* random candlesticks, gobblets or anything that would be cute for the base.  Find them at thrift stores, garage sales…your moms kitchen. hee hee.  No, mom. I did not take your stuff….

* random plates.  They can be different sizes.  I used platters, serving dishes {the white on has the cup spot}, little tea plates or whatever.

* Glue.  I used an apoxy glue.  You squeeze it and then mix the 2 and voila! you have super glue that works on everything.  It also smells up your house.  It reminded me of the home perm smell.  I think I had 1 too many of those. 🙂
