I love cake plates! It’s easy to figure out why – there is typically something delicious sitting on the top of them. I also like them because they typically aren’t difficult to make and you can use budget materials to achieve a cool look that will have partygoers saying “wow.” A cake stand isn’t as hard to DIY as you might think. This confetti cake stand from One Charming Party uses Mod Podge and tissue paper – that’s it! Are you ready to see more cake stands? Click through the jump!
