Hi everyone!
I have this idea i want to try,...I am doing my best friends wedding in 2 weeks, doing it all,...decor stage,..both cakes and im the photographer,...whew! I have this idea for her cake, will be 4 tiers one bogus, I am having my husband take thick plexi glass and building me a square clear base that i want to turn upside down and fill with her color of tulle filled with lights,...of course hell cut out a notch for the cords in the back,...and i thought i might do the middle layer as a glass layer a complete box filled with the tulle and lights again and then have final two layers on top, this a stupid idea? Im concerned about what he uses to glue it together with to with stand the weight!

Cool idea. I would be concerned too with the clear box...I'm not a builder but I think there would need to be some kind of brace in the corners to withstand the weight and it not cave in on it's self. But maybe you could get some wooden blocks(same height as base), paint it the color of the tulle and/or wrap a piece of the tulle around it. Then glue gun or place them in the corners of the base to give it some stability and it not look bad.

You can do the same thing with glass blocks.

Glass blocks are the way to go. You can take then back after you're done with them if nothing happens to them. Menards has them and I'm sure other home builders shops will too.
