i have a bride who would like a square mirrored cake plateau/stand that is two to four inches high, similiar to the one show in this link
Does anyone know where I can find something like this in square?
Thanks for posting that link. Unfortunately. she wants one to look EXACTLY like the one in the picture, only square.
If you Google mirror tiles, you will see that they come in sizes from 0.5 x 0.5 inch to more than 20 x 20 inches. One can usually find the mirror tiles in home improvement stores--maybe not all the sizes. If I were in your position, I would determine what tiles to order for the dimensions I've decided on and then make it myself out of medium density fiberboard (or plywood? fir?). The places where I buy wood for projects cut pieces to size for me. Or perhaps you have a clever husband/carpenter/handy-person around?
Oh the things we do for brides. Lately I've been making most of my wedding cake stands (a cedar tree slab, a lit organza thing....) If this were my assignment, I would get the appropriate dense foam insulation sheet and cut to size. Because the sheet usually comes 2" thick I would stack and forms until I reached the desired height. See http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100320352/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
then glue on mosaic mirrored tiles from http://www.kitkraft.biz/product.php?productid=5544. A glass cutter can get you a mirror cut to the top size of the stand.
Pass the cost onto the bride (approx. $100 when all is said and done) or charge her rental and you have it for later weddings.
The dense foam board is surprisingly sturdy. I've used it several times for four tiered cakes with no problem.
Good luck and please post a picture of whatever you finally do.
PS my daughter just gave me a reality check by suggesting using a dummy cake instead of cutting a gluing building insulation. She said may bakers are using dummy cakes as the bottom tier of multi tiered cakes so it should be strong enough. God bless smart daughters
