Hi guys,
I need your cc expertise! I am making a roulette wheel cake (plus board) and I want the cake to spin by itself. I just spent the last hour researching CC and calling various Home Depots and RadioShacks. Here are the suggestions I found: take apart an old turntable, disco ball, rotating christmas tree stand, microwave.

Does anyone have any idea how to go about doing that? (I'm not very hardware-minded). Does anyone know which would be the best to use in terms of how fast it goes/how easy it would be to take apart and reassemble? Are there any other motors I should use?

Thanks so much!!!
