FABULOUS Cake & Cupcake Stand

Want a FABULOUS stand to hold your FABULOUS cakes and cupcakes?  Here's how!

1- 10.5" MDF Board Cirlce
1- 6" Finial (I found mine at Home Depot)
1- 5x5" MDF Board Square
Wood Glue
Finish Spray
Ribbon & Embellishments

Mark the centers of your circle and sqaure base.

Drill a hold half way through the square (in the center!) with your drill.  Make the hole just a little smaller than the screw in the bottom of the finial.

Apply wood glue to the base of the finial and screw that baby into the square base...using all your might!  Apparently I was having a difficult time with this part.  I probably should work out a little more.

Apply wood glue to the top of the finial and place on top of the circle.  Let dry!
Paint and seal.  I like the Matte Finishing Spray from Krylon.
Apply your ribbon or embellishments.

This project is insanely easy and inexpensive.  Total cost was under $6.00!

I'm in the process of planning my DD's 2nd birthday in August 2010. I know long time away, little secret, I've been planning since November 2009. Can you say crazy momma?!

I love this cake stand! It is so cute!! Where could I buy the circle MDF board and the square MDF board or do I have to cut them out?

You can buy the MDF board at Lowe's or Home Depot. They can cut it out for you if you don't have the tools to DIY. You just have to smile real nice like!
