If you're stressing about a Mother's Day gift, why not take a DIY approach and use a few salvaged vintage items to create a lovely cake stand? Our friend Melissa from the blog SugarDerby
shows us the surprisingly easy how-to.
A cake stand
is one of those things that are so adorable yet kind of hard to find. I mean, there's glass ones everywhere (you don't have to walk 5 feet into a thrift shop before bumping into 10) but the pretty ceramic kinds seem to be in short supply. That's why I was so excited to see this tutorial by Melissa over at SugarDerby. All you have to do is glue the bottom of a vintage teacup
to a plate, creating a pedestal-style cake stand. Genius.
You're not limited to using a tea cup to create the cake stand pedestal, though. A little glass bud vase, bottle or apothecary jar can work just as well. To ensure the strongest bond, use a specialty adhesive that works with glass and ceramic, like Loctite Stik'n Seal Indoor Adhesive
