DIY Fluted Cake Plate

By Vixenmade @vixenMade

Apparently, I don't have enough cake plates. Ha! Well, besides my love for party planning and creating new hardware for them out of inexpensive items, who doesn't want a new $2 cake plate?  (Or less if you have these things on hand already!)
And to make things more interesting, I created a new 'fluted' cake plate.  Wanna know how?

All you need is a candlestick and a tart pan.

Get yourself some heavy duty glue.  I love the Amazing Goop stuff.  They have a special 'craft' glue too.  Great stuff!

Add it to your candlestick.

And stick it onto your tart pan (with the lip facing down when the cake plate is up).

I added some weight just to be sure, but it'll work either way.

Give it a day and you've got a new cake plate.

Of course, it's not so pretty quite yet.

Prime it up and spray paint it a few coats of your favorite color.  I used white.  White goes with everything!

Never would have guessed it was once a tart pan, right!?
