DIY Cake Plate

I found this idea on Pinterest first, it was a pin from The Happy Housewife's blog.  It can be found here.

I made my own version using some beautiful ceramic plates I found at Hobby Lobby. 

First, I started with a glass candlestick holder.

Spray paint the candlestick holder black. 

Then instead of hot glue, I used epoxy in a syringe as the bonding agent.  To use the syringe, you have to squeeze a bit of the of both substances and mix them together. 

I use a toothpick to apply the mixture to the top of of the painted candlestick holder. 

Then press the candlestick holder to the bottom of the ceramic plate and hold for about a minute.

Leave the plate upside down, it takes about a day for the epoxy to cure completely.  Once it cures, the cake plate is done.  These are great for sweets like cookies, cupcakes and petits fours.
