Cake Stands and Candy Dishes
Materials: OPPEN plate/bowl, NEGLINGE candlestick, E6000 epoxy
Description: Cake stands are always so expensive at retail stores like Target and the like, when they are basically just elevated plates. Why not elevate your own?
1: Remove the labels from everything and wash carefully.
2: Mark the exact center of a glass OPPEN plate or bowl, on the top face, with a black marker.
3: Apply E6000 evenly to the top face of the NEGLINGE candlestick. Don’t worry if there’s too much, you can get the excess off with a razor blade later.
4: Align the plate/bowl with the center of the candlestick and press down firmly. Allow the epoxy to set for 24 hours before moving.
While this is drying, prepare your favorite cake or candy to fill the bowl. You can also stack them and make tiered cupcake stands, or jewelry holders.
