It was my granddaughter’s Christening this weekend – we had the most wonderful family gathering in the fabulous sunshine we are revelling in this summer.
Friends brought an amazing display of gorgeous cakes
And cake stands were needed.
We had a cardboard one from a birthday party last year and I wondered if I could make another one
So I gathered mounting card and paper plates (i wondered if old cereal packets would do, but I think you would have to glue 3 layers together to get the stability required)
I roughly drew round the ‘fairy castle’ cardboard stand ….
Cut the slots in the bases and tried it out
Then cut the shape out with a Stanley knife, straightening the curvy lines to make it easy
Did some doodling to decorate
And hey presto! A cake stand!
