Ooh... I really don't know how but have wanted one for years and not been able to find one. I know you will need to find a motor and I think mount a base of some sort.

Anybody???

try a rotating tree stand or get one of the circle turntables for your microwave that works too.

Do you mean one that rotates by itself?

I think "electric turntables" is what you are looking for. A Google search will turn up some unrelated results like record players, but you will see examples of what you are looking for. You can also search "electric cake turntable".

They're pretty expensive.

Seems like someone clever could jerry-rig something cheaper.

I was looking for a way to turn a cake during a competition and was try to find a way to move it. My grandma had one in her microwave and my suggested it. It's been a few years since I researched the idea, but it was like a wind up type thing and needed no electricity. I did see at the competition a turntable with this magnet that as long as the magnet was connected to it, it would rotate, but I've never seen another like it. Really, liked the idea. They owned a bakery in Belvidere, IL named Costa Confections. Maybe see where she got it from.

No, I think what they are talking about is a turntable made for a microwave...they were popular before when micro's didn't just come with a turntable built in. I have one I bought 15 yrs ago. It's an accessory. I actually used mine for a barbie cake I made back then, lol. Wow, that was my first decorated cake. It turns ok, but makes noise-from being wound up.

Look online for microwave turntables. I can't remember the brand name. I don't remember them making noise. I was a kid then, but it works. Thanks for helping with the explanation.
