Cake Plates.

The results of my makeshift cake plate experiments:

I used epoxy to put the plates and candle holders together. I think it worked pretty well on everything except for the ┬áred/white floral plate on the white milk glass vase in the lower left hand corner of the picture — the glue didn’t hold on that one. Maybe the epoxy doesn’t work on two ceramic items? I don’t know. And I’m kind of worried about trying to sell them in the booth without knowing for sure that the hold will take for real. I think I need to do some more experimentation before these hit the shelves.

Leilani Fun project, I wouldn’t have thought to pair the candlesticks with the plates. While I have WAY too many vintage kitchen items I still don’t own a tiered cake plate OR a cake carrier (really want a chrome one with ‘cake’ written on it).

Lara Jo Thank you! I LOVE it! I grudgingly put it in the both but I cheated — I marked up up way more than I usually price things. That way, it might not sell and I’ll get to keep it!

Lara Jo I will keep my eyes out for a cake carrier for you. I’ve seen people do tiered cake plates with vintage china — they drill through the middle of the plate to stack them. I want to try that — I want to figure out how to drill through china not only for that but to try and make a clock out of them. I haven’t had the nerve yet.
