Five Minute, Five Dollar Cake Stand

A couple years ago Karen had given me a cake stand she had made and I LOVED IT! Unfortunately, due to a mishap at a family party, the cake stand met an untimely fate. I have been on the hunt for a replacement going to several places, HomeGoods, Kohls, GYGI, Target, but I just didn't want to pay $20. My husband had the brilliant idea saying "Why don't you just make one, Karen made you that other one, and it would be way cheaper." Well, yes that would be the smart thing to do. I took a trip to Tai Pan Trading and found this large ceramic charger plate for $3.97 and the small rice bowl for $$1.50, much more in my paper thin budget.I applied some E6000 to the bottom of my plate and bowl...
Centered the bowl on the bottom of the plate and let it dry overnight....
Now I have a lovely cake stand! In this photo it kind of looks crooked, but I promise it is straight in real life.
I think it turned out well for $5 and 5 minutes.
