DH usually makes anything l need. I will ask him how he would make something like that. From past expeience i know he would use 1/4 to 1/2 plywood. depending on size of cake. and probably pvc pipe. Maybe you can print out a pic go to hardware store and ask what you would need to make it? HTH

I guess I'm wondering how would you attached the vertical post? icon_confused.gif I would of course want to make sure it was very sturdy.

there's a few ways you can do it. You can drill a hole in the base board and put a t-nut in there. It's a nut that's threaded on the inside, and has teeth on you slide it down into the hole (making the hole threaded) and then the teeth grab into the wood on the top (u just hammer it in so it's nice and secure)

Then you could just get a threaded center rod and screw it inside of the nut.

This is how I make my cupcake stands.
