I searched for months looking for a pedestal stand like the Wilton one, but big enough for a larger cake. The biggest I could find was a 14" diameter, to hold a 12" cake. So I had my DH make me this for a wedding I had earlier today. I was so pleased with it. He made it from wood. It is an 18" diameter and held a 16" cake on the bottom tier. Two thumbs for my hubby...he is on my good list for this week!!! icon_lol.gif

What a great husband. I love it and it supports a beautiful cake.

cakequeen50 Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 6:29pm

I'm so husband is so un-handy!

Is your hubby giving directions to make this??? I know my Dad can do it.

Beautiful stand and cake!

DiannaSue Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 6:36pm

VERY NICE the cake and the stand. Nice to know hubbies help. If you give out the instructions I would be interested also.

brnrlvr Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 6:37pm

Wow! A 18 inch single leg stand! Your hubby did nice work! Can you post a picture of the stand so we can see it better?

Beautiful cake too!

Wow! He did a great job on the stand! Your cake is beautiful too! You make a great team!

missym Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 6:46pm

Love your cake and the stand!!

LillyLou Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 7:10pm

I'd love to see a close up of the stand, too. I've got my father working on 2 cake stands, a round one that is painted white and uses clear glass door knobs for the feet (he's got that one done) and a square one made out of walnut and will stain when he's finished constructing it. He'll carve decorative legs for it.

My question is, what did your husband use for the pedestal? thumbs_up.gif Your hubby did a great job! thumbs_up.gif And your cake is wonderful!

CarolinaBelle Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 7:43pm

Beautiful cake stand and cake. icon_smile.gif

campinsp Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 7:55pm

The stand looks very professional. Your hubby did a great job. I love your cake. Very nice thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

sarahnichole975 Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 7:59pm

That's fantastic. I'm gonna have to crack a whip around here.....

Beautiful cake also!

AnythingSugar Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 8:02pm

Your cake and the stand are both beautiful! Your husband did a great job!
I bet he could sell those.

HBcakes Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 8:03pm

Great idea to just make your own!! He did a fabulous job, and your cake looks so awsome too!

lilypad Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 8:14pm

Seems as though your husband may have a new business in the the cake pedestal market! thumbs_up.gif

sbcakes Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 8:26pm

Ok gals...he read all of these wonderful posts and he's feeling like quite "the man" right now!!! icon_lol.gif
I will get a close up picture of the stand and put his directions on later on tonight...
I've gotta go and pop his bubble right now...I don't think his head is going to fit through the door!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Hollyanna70 Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 8:39pm

Maybe he should consider making one of those a week, or two weeks, and selling them on ebay. icon_smile.gif

If it's difficult to find a stand that size, I'll bet a lot of people would probably buy them. Especially, if you put the word out here he's making them to sell. icon_wink.gif

Just a thought.

I think the stand is just beautiful! You're lucky to have a husband that can do such things. I can get mine to hold a board while "I" drill the holes through it.. haha (don't get me wrong, my husband is wonderful and I love him dearly, he's just a computer geek, not a handy man).


superstar Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 8:39pm

A wonderful stand & a beautiful cake. Looking forward to seeing the stand & instructions. My DH is very handy & had said when he saw the prices of some of the stands that there were quite a few he could make. I will keep you updated when that happens.

brnrlvr Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 9:02pm

Lillylou- can we see pictures of yours?

Me too! Love the stand.... I see a tutorial possibility!!!

novacaine24 Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 11:16pm

Beautiful work by you and hubby...

so does this mean he's taking orders? (hint hint) icon_lol.gif

LillyLou Posted 21 Aug 2007 , 3:09am


My dad is still working on them and he lives in Jacksonville, Fl. I'm in Montgomery, AL so I've got to go pick them up when he finishes them. I'll post pictures when I get them and when I figure out how to post them. I'm not very up-to-date on compooter stuff.

brnrlvr Posted 21 Aug 2007 , 12:59pm

Thanks! I'll look forward to them! If you can get your picture on your computer, all you have to do is when you are posting a reply, scroll down and there is an "add an attachment" tab. Click it and it walks you through adding an attachment!

KASCARLETT Posted 21 Aug 2007 , 1:44pm

Your cake is beautiful and your husband should make those stands and sell them on Ebay - awesome job!
