Hi! I need 30 such cheap plastic pedestal plates, and another 30 that are smaller. Where can I find them? I could only find this size, and they're too expensive for the occasion. Thanx!

Have you tried a $ store?
Have you tried Gorden's Food Service or Smart N Final?
A well stocked party supply store......I thinking a really big on that has all kinds of decor for every holiday & occasion.
Good luck, hope this helps some.

You could purchase a package of disposable plastic plates in the size you want to look much like your picture. Get a matching amount of dessert cups or glasses (etc.) Turn the cups base side up and glue them to the center of the bottom of the plate.
"TA DA" cheap cake plates! Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

my students once made cake stands with pretty clear 6 inch plates and hot glued those to the fake plastic champagne glasses. we made 125 of these and the decorated ganached cakes that went on the stand. they were cheap,cute, pretty, but very easily tipped.

if you want something that's less likely to tip over, go to the dollar store and buy glass plates. hot glue them to short glass candleholders. I did this for a party using cheap ivy bowls ($1 each) and candleholders of varying heights. They'll be a little more expensive, but you can keep the pieces and remake them for all different occasions! You can see this in the attached picture.

These will be for mini cupcakes, so that won't be too heavy. i have to look through the top of my closet to see what I have there, and I will try it out to see how secure it is.

There are some homemade versions in the template gallery. One that might be sturder is w/a drinking type glass, rather than a wine type glass. I think the bowls would be pretty sturdy though. Lots of surface area touching the table and the plate, and not tall enough really for the weight to make it unstable.

an ice cream dish works perfectly, wide enough to keep balanced. hth!

The vases are great! Did these for my daughters wedding. I am a recycling "cheapo" and always on the look out for ideas. Fun learning about what others do. FYI-I also purchase colorful, pretty, unusual saucers (for mini cakes) plates, platters, trays etc. and glue them to the bottoms of vases, planters, cookie jars, candle holders (basically anything that has a flat surface) and they make quite unique cake plates at a very minimum price. Have fun with your project and I hope your mini cakes turn out fantastic. icon_smile.gif
