Back when I pitched this idea, many of you were worried that if I didn’t permanently glue to the plates to the candlesticks that we would end up with cake on the table and the floors – or basically anywhere opposite of the place we want the cake (in our tummehs!). I considered the options, and while I still like the idea of being able to take them apart and reuse the pieces separately, I decided to test the gluing option.
I had a tube of E-6000 and decided to just go for it. I’m pretty happy with the results, so I decided to show you how it turned out and how I plan to make 13 more cake plates for our tables.
This cake plate was as easy as pie cake. You need the following supplies:
Once you’ve gathered your supplies, follow these simple steps:
You can see the glue a little bit where I’m pointing. This is no big deal. Why? Because it’s going to be covered in cake. That’s why.
Here’s a look at the finished product:
Would you like to know the grand total for the project? Raise your hand if you like a bargain like me!
Yeah… I’ll let you catch the breath that you lost in wonder of my mad skills (both bargaining and glue-wise). I’m going to finish the rest a week or so before the wedding because they’re easier to store separately for the moment. I’m also really excited to pass these along after the wedding, but I may just keep the showstopper above!
Have you worked on any projects that have included the incredible E-6000 glue?
