When I spotted these ramekins I just knew they were going to be a favorite in my kitchen. Such favorites that I used them to create a DIY cake stand! The ramekins are simple and modern looking and I just adore the colors. Making your own cake plate is fairy easy – you just need a base and a plate. You can easily glue the two pieces together using a strong adhesive or you can make a temporary cake stand like me! I chose to make mine using velcro so I could have the versatility of using the ramekins for other purposes. Another favorite thing about this project…. it is so inexpensive. The ramekin is $3 and the plate is $5!
Read on for the full tutorial for the DIY Cake Stand…
- Place velcro dots on the bottom of the ramekin. Even though there is a dip in the bottom of the dish, I placed enough velcro dots so the opposite side of the velcro could attach.
- Attach the opposite side of the velcro onto itself, sticky side up. Place the bottom side of plate onto the sticky side of vecro. Let stand for 10 mins.
- I used 8.5 and 10.5 in plates. The small ramekins are 2.5 in tall and the larger 3 inches tall.
Now you have a temporary cake stand! I varied the size of the white plates with the ramekins. When placing stands on my party table, I also added a box under my table cloth to add even more height!
