I remember seeing cake stands made out of what looked to me like crown moulding. I've looked and looked but can't seem to find the site. Anyone???

I googled it and found this site. Scroll all the way down almost to the bottom, and there is a picture of the stand and some simple instructions. It looks pretty cool!!

That's the type of stand I was talking about. My DH is going to build some for me and I wanted to give him an idea of what I was talking aboutl. Thanks!

I had seen at one time recently a cake stand, that looked like it was a tree but had platters to hold the cake on it...I cant find it now...but I did a search on the net to find stands...try wrought iron cake stands, and also cake stands, unique...maybe you can find something like that.

Ive used all sorts of things..Ive even bought a silver platter, with a slight curve at the edge, and then got the big soda glasses...put flowers, lights in the glasses, and at times beds...placed a plate on it...then another glass etc..to make a tower...Ive also put them at different levels to give a nice effect. LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND SOMETHING!!!!

I can't get the pages to load (I'm still on dial up!) but my dh made me a cake stand for a chocolate cake I did. I don't know how to link the picture here but it's in my gallery. It is a raised stand and turned out really pretty. He sealed it with food grade sealer so there were no worries about food on it.

I went to Lowes, bought an 18" and 24" beveled round table top. Already cut and sanded. I added four finials (and they come in ALL sorts of sizes and shapes) and screwed them into the table top. Painted with high gloss white enamal paint. Voila, easy cake stand. See photo for finished product. Cost less than $20 for each. I use parchemnt between the cake and board.
