Cake Plate Tutorial

I know that this tutorial has been done a thousand times over but I have wanted a cake plate stand FOREVER.
{does anyone else always have the sandlot movie pop in their head when saying forever– best movie ever :)}
So this is what I started with

found at good old D.I. for a whoppin 50cents

So I painted it white- and found a white square plate at Walley world aka Walmart

Than we got some of this– Gorilla Glue Epoxy– ya Gorilla glue your my friend 🙂

Hubby Marked the plate where we wanted it to be

Added the glue, stuck the stand on and let it sit for a day.

And Wallah a cake stand for Ellie’s Birthday Cake 🙂
