For Fun: Which cake could you eat all the day long?

mini domed cake stand.

There are projects that I am so very excited about that I forgo important work so that I can make them. This mini domed cake stand is one of them. Like the diy ring dish tutorial I recently did for a Christmas gift, this domed cake stand is so quick and easy it’s downright shameful. So of course, I have to share the simple steps with you so you can make one of your own!  This will quickly become your go-to gift.

There are many wonderful tutorials for creating your own cake stands (we actually have another one for a shell cake stand). But, this domed version is a special twist. Of course, the mini size of this stand (don’t worry, you can do a full version!) adds to the adorableness. A mini domed cake stand would be a gift that most anyone would be pleased to receive! Honestly though, I’m keeping this one. I love it!

Oh my goodness! What a lovely gift to give! This handmade domed cake stand is so quick and easy to make...anyone can do it!

  domed cake stand materials

Materials needed for mini domed cake stand:

  • bowl
  • small plate
  • small cup, egg cup, sundae dish, or candlestick
  • large bead or knob
  • E6000 or similarly strong clear, waterproof glue

This is when you splurge on that beautiful bowl and plate set you saw, or the gorgeous hand painted bead you love.  I went to Pier 1 for my set and had a hard time choosing WHICH set to get. You could try your local thrift store and see what you can find. I had my heart set on this little set since I decided to make this project. A drawer knob will work for the top if you can remove the screw and it will still look nice. Otherwise, a large bead works well.

    Grammar and spelling are never optional if you want people to read what you’ve written. Converational, informal writing is fine in a blog. Seriously, there is a large segment of DIYers who know grammar. Don’t alienate them, and grow your audience.

    This is a pretty plate and bowl. I know cake stands from Dollar Tree are all over Pinterest, but they don’t have the dome which is why I didn’t bother. This changes things.

      oh yes, we agree. The comment about grammar was in response to one of the comments from our readers making a mistake in it’s versus its. We were just letting her know we didn’t hold it against her. It wasn’t a general comment directed as a whole. And, I do agree about grammar. And, I am not the best in the grammar and spelling department. I try, but it is difficult for me. That is why I brought on Lanet who is has English in her resume background. She has a big job helping keep the conversational tone and still have good grammar. Poor girl! Have a great weekend!

    Love the mini dome dish. I think I will try it as gifts. Maybe even the Christmas bazaar. I also purchased
    D this summer a bird feeder that was made from glass bowls and glass drinking glasses. It is beautiful. The lady was also selling tea cups as bird feeders. Amazing ideas.
