Because you are gluing these pieces together try not to get dishes with scalloped edges, you want a nice clean edge to put glue on. My scalloped edged dish was at the bottom (non-glued) of my dish, not a problem!
To Make Cake Stand with a Dome:
- glue the parts together.
- let dry.
Be sure to place the right side things up and the down side things down. Try to keep your glue from being to gloopy (yes, I just said gloopy) and just wipe off any excess before it dries completely. If you like, paint the bottom of the bowl with white porcelain paint to cover any labels that might be printed. Or, choose a large enough bead or knob to cover. Whether you need to make cake stand knobs or not, just be sure the top looks clean. This mini domed cake stand project was inspired by the version Anthropologie sells on their site for a whopping $148.00. My dear friends, I love you but am not paying $148.00 for a project that cost me $12.00 (and that seems a lot!). I love you enough to say no. And, to give you a quick and easy alternative! Have fun making one, or two, or a bunch of these as fun gifts for friends and loved ones!
And as usual, if you don’t feel like you want to make cake stand, you can always buy one. Really, that’s allowed! You could get the awesome Anthro version, but if you are okay with a simple and cute mini stand, without all the fuss, this one on Amazon might do the trick.
