Anyone have pictures of cake stands they have made themselves or maybe some ideas or directions? Thanks!

Here is a stand i made out of a set of 3 cutting boards i found at walmart. It displays a centerpiece and then 2-3 dozen cupcakes or all cupcakes. The edge is wide enought to add color coordinating ribbon. I've used it several times for different occasions

I have one in my pictures that my husband made out of wood. It's very popular for fall weddings and any cakes that are chocolate.

I recently made a cake for a Sweet 15 party, I made three 10x10 squared cakes. I bought two squared glass flower vases of different height. I decorated the inside of the vases with a rose and a rose bud, rocks and butterflies, all from Hobby Lobby. I used mirror plates from the craft dept not the candles area (they're more expensive) to place the cakes and placed the cakes on top of the vases. Hope this helps

There are many ways to create one. You can use candle holders as the pedestal, baseboards to frame a box shaped stand, inverted bowls and many more.
