I'm making an 11x15 sheet cake for a party and it will be displayed on the gift table ... does anyone have an idea for an inexpensive stand that will get the cake higher off the table and still have some stability? Thanks for any ideas!!!

What about using a chip type bowl from the $ store. Hot glue that to the bottom of your covered cake board so it doesn't slip, HTH

I have used a large cake pan under the cake board (sturdy) and depending on the look I want, I sometimes use a pretty tablecloth or piece of fabric draping over the pan.

If there will be a tablecloth on the table, you could use a cardboard box. It should be sturdy enough, give you the lift that you need and you could probably pick one up at the grocery store for free.

How about a glass rack? Drape it in a tablecloth, and it would be perfect. Depending on the look that you want, you can "poof" if around at the bottom, or go for a smoother, sleeker look and wrap it around the glass rack like a gift.

I've seen one like the first one listed at the thrift store and never thought about using it for a sheet cake stand. Now, I have another reason to go back to the thrift store. Thanks for the great idea.

Another thing is those glass blocks that you can get at home depot or lowes. They are in the bathroom area or flooring area. Cant remember.

Ohhh, glass blocks, that could be pretty. You could set a set of battery operated lights behind it (like the ones at the holidays). I'll have to remember that one. Thanks Shelly
