I would print off the first picture and bring it to the hardware store, and they can help you find all the pieces you need. the white tube looks like abs pipe, as for the little metal thing on the bottom i have no idea, good luck

It looks like a flange on the board with pvc off of that. It would be sturdy! I really like the base of it. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing the link.

this was such a great looking cake, have no idea of what the top was either but would love to know what you find out!

It is lovely isn't it. The base and the cake I just love everything about it! I guess I really need to learn about this DIY stuff!
