This past weekend our church had it's annual auction. As a part of the auction, one of my dear friends coordinates the dessert auction. I offered up my services to make cake stands for the Mardi Gras themed fundraiser.
I was able to find a few cake stands that just needed a little help with some spray paint, and then made the rest using cups, candlesticks, plates and platters.
I used a little strong glue to adhere the two together, and you get some fancy (sometimes wacky) looking dessert stands.
Pair the new cake stands with some beautiful fancy schmancy desserts, and you have some great items for each table to bid big on!
I will never look at candlesticks the same again!
