day seventy seven: tiered cake stand

the finished tiered cake stand :)
day seventy and we are organising for friday's daffodil day, which is a new zealand national fundraiser day for the fight against cancer.  for the last seven years the kids and i have always helped at a bake sale to raise funds and our tables are always laden with delicious baked goods for people to buy for a gold coin donation.

today's tiered cake stand creation is about adding some height to the table of goodies so we can squeeze even more on to sell!  this cake stand is pinned to my general crafts pinterest board and is inspired by the one on jamie cooks it up which is so cute and as a bonus she has the most wonderful family friendly recipe blog!

what you require for a tiered cake stand :)
i purchased two yellow plates (given its for daffodil day) and a glass candle stick.  i stuck the candle stick to the upside down smallest plate first and let it dry.  i then attached the candle stick and plate to the large plate right side up (if that makes sense!).

adhering the first plate to the candle stick
outcome:  totally awesome, i am SO happy with how this looks and i plan to make one for christmas, easter, and halloween to add some goodies to!  they are way too easy to make not to have many of these, my only issue will be storing all the different holiday ones i plan to make!  but in the meantime this one is set to have blueberry muffins adorn it for tomorrows bake sale, wish me luck :)

my sincere thanks to jamie cooks it up for the awesome idea and tutorial about putting together a tiered cake stand, its awesome and so are all the wonderful recipes on her blog :)
