If you need a decorative cake stand for parties, wedding receptions, bridal and baby showers, here's a simple and very inexpensive DIY project. All you need are two SKURAR candle dishes for the combined price of $6.98, a cake stand handle, a drill, 10 minutes and you're set.
Cake stand handles come in a variety of sizes, 1-tier, 2-tier and 3-tier. Colors also vary. I personally prefer the silver-toned to give it a more elegant look. However, the white-tone will work just fine for a more casual look. I think the key here is to find a 2-tier handle. It has only 2 pieces. If you find a 3-tier handle with 3 pieces, use 2 of the pieces.
There are several vendors on Etsy. The handles can be out-of-stock at any time so these links may or may not provide up-to-date inventory levels. Just do a search for "cake plate hardware" or "cake stand handle". Here's a link where I found several of them.
