I love cake stands, I think they are a fantastic way to set a table giving varying heights for the food and also they look good. I have something of a passion for them and when my mum died I took all hers and now I pretty much have a sideboard full of them, however, that is not always enough!

What can Blu Tack be used for?

Other than just attaching posters to walls, Blu Tack has other uses. You will always find a ball of it on my desk as I tend to use it as a fidget tool, if it is not on y desk then changes are Mini will have pinched it and will be doing the same!

I have seen some fabulous homemade cake stands but I didn’t want to make permanent stands just temporary ones. This is where Blu Tack comes in. As it is a removable adhesive it works to temporarily join items, this means you can use items you already own such as a plate as the top of your cake stand and an upside-down jar, cup or candlestick holder for the base. Then once the party is over you can then return all items to their rightful place!

Materials:

  • Teacups and saucers
  • Blu Tack

How to make DIY Temporary cake stands

Warm up your Blu Tack, this makes it more pliable and helps it adhere easier.

Apply the Blue tack on to the centre of the base the plate or platter that is going to be the top of the cake stand. Press lightly and hold it for a few seconds while the Blue tack is setting. Allow the Blu Tack to cool to room temperature for 10 minutes before using or moving your cake stand.

I am so pleased at how these turned out and now I am keeping my eyes out for different bowls and plates to make more for the summer.

    Hello !
    I’m writing an article for a french DIY magazine (printed on paper), about DIY with popsicle sticks.
    I find your harmonica made with sticks very interesting !
    (seen here : https://www.muminthemadhouse.com/lolly-stick-harmonica-or-a-popsicle-stick-harmonica/)
    Would you allow me to use a photo of it in the article ?
    Of course, I will write your name next to the picture and give the address of your blog/website in the address book at the end of the magazine !
    If yes, can you please answer as soon as possible (with sending a photo in high resolution it would be perfect !) ?
    I have to give my paper very quickly… 😮
