Today I decided to visit the BIG Goodwill retail store near us. There's a smaller one that I visit often, but I just had to check out this big one.
I've driven passed it many times on my way to the pet store for turtle food...cat food...Guinea pig food... But I never stop! So today I made a special trip.
I was actually looking for 2 things in particular. 1- a plate. 2- a candle stick.
First I found the candle stick and it was perfect...fat, sturdy, not too tall. The plate wasn't so easy.
This particular Goodwill store sold sets of dishes and I just wanted a decorative plate. No luck. But I did find a glass microwave dish...you know, the one that sets in the microwave and turns?
While it wasn't the exact thing I wanted, I got it anyway. It would serve the purpose and I plan on making more....oh wait....I didn't tell you what I was making...did I?
Using a glue for glass, glue the plate to the candle stick. Bam! Cake stand! For around 5 bucks I hasn't a custom cake stand!
I will find the pretty plate I wanted and make another one!
$2.99 for the candle stick!
$1.99 for the 'plate'!
Glue on the candlestick...
Center the plate on top and let dry!
There you have it!
And that's a homemade butter cake with lemon buttercream icing.
