So I am open to suggestions, but i have been asked to do a "Sex in the City" themed cake. I was trying to think of neat ways to do the cake stand.... and here is my thought...

Martini glasses to hold up the cake Drum.... The cake is most likely going to be 10" round or square, 8", and a 6" stacked.

So depended on board size, id get enough glasses to arrange underneath.
What do you think? too risky?

If you have any other ideas id be greatful!The customer just specified they wanted a stand for added hight. I only have some traditional stands... that just seem to fit with the theme.

some kitchen supply or gourmet kitchen gadget stores carry oversized martini glasses. i would maybe turn it upside down to give yourself a wider base to the stand.

Yeah that was my first thought. Found a couple today but the base of the glass is too small i fear to be stable enough... thats why i was thinking multiple "regular sized" glasses. icon_sad.gif

I was thinking gluing them also. I think the martini glass is a great idea and you should figure out a way to make it work!

I think you'd be fine with the regular ones, just have enough outer support and turn a few upside down in the middle, or you could just alternate all of them icon_smile.gif

What a cute idea! I say make it work and then be sure to post the picture! One thing you could do is make your base and then stack several large books on top until you have approximately the weight or height of your cake and see how that feels to you. I think it will look great!

I have to make a cake next weekend with champagne flutes (3) 'glued' to mirrored tiles as a separator. I am so nervous about the support underneath. Any ideas? I normally use hollow plastic dowels.
