Hi all. I did a search on this first, but all the threads said "No posts exist for this topic". (sigh)
I have to meet a bride later today and I was going to pitch this idea to her. I tried PMing the creator of this gorgeous cake, but I haven't received a reply yet.
So how do I do this? Are these plastic or glass?
I'll try to post the pic......
By the way, this is a cake by gracefull.
The glasses look to be glass, and it was likely setup at the event. So long as there is not an overly large teir sitting ontop the glasses, it should hold well. Beautiful cake - I'd be anxious to see the creators reply
as long as you dowel the middle tier, and the top is not too big, the glasses will be fine,
its a stunning cake btw!!
i did the same set up before. if you can find some double adhesive tape you can use that to secure the bottom of the glass to your cake board or plate.
that cake is gorgeous! good luck on your pitch
I Don't know if you have one close to you, but you can usually find cheap wine / champaigne glasses at Dollar Tree... If so, hot glue them to the plates and cut the worry factor... Have it ready the day before...
plbennett.. that is such a smart idea to hot glue them... i might borrow that someday...
Ive used them before, I buy my glasses at the dollar store...Ive turned them over also...and have put in glass round pebbles u get at walmart and a Ive also used them as table decoration with those pebbles and put mini candles in them...Ive also put and I dont know what there called...other than little girls ponytail ties...that have the ribbon out of see through shiney material...I put the pony tail at the end (bottom) of the glass to match the theme color I want....
I have found u can basically use anything that can hold the cakes secure..vases...metal stands...even boxes nicely done...and then drape with cloth. Flower pots (cermanic and colorful)...ANYTHING....
I've been wondering the same thing! I've got a friend/co-worker that is interested in using wine glasses as pillars for her wedding cake... but she wants TWO sets of wine glasses!
Hey, OP, mind PMing me the original link for the cake you posted so I can add it to my favorites?
hi i have seen a few of these and lov ethe idea and am waiting for the right bride to sujest it to. i would do it by purchasinf a couple of cheap glasses from a dollar shop or similar and super glue them to the bottom and top board then dowel underneath for support and RI the top and bottom tiers tothe top and bottom boards that contain the glasses so that when the bride and groom go to 'cut the cake' it doesn't all come falling down (I am a bit paranoid about tiers moving )
waterfallsoygurl - I never added it to my faves, unfortunately, I just saved it on my computer. If you do a search on gracefull's cakes, you can probably find it there!
What a great idea. The slender flutes would look wonderful too.
have to try this one!!
Here's another one where the whole cake is elevated on wine glasses(and it's a big cake). Love the effect!
Toodlesjupiter, that's another really beautiful cake!
Yeah, danasflowers did an awesome job!
