  1. What a fun idea and fairly simple, even for the non crafty type like myself. This would be a great display for a bake sale!

  3. Anonymous - I'll double check when I get home, but they're about 2" or so apart.

  5. This is wonderful...thank your for posting this. I do have one question...in the "What you'll need:" you have listed 11/32" drill bit. Should it have been a 11/64" drill bit. Please let me know... I ready to make this. Thanks,

  6. Anonymous - I don't have the bit handy since I'm at work, but I *do* have a tool kit here -- and you're absolutely right! I goofed (and will change the post). it should be 11/64. Good catch - thank you!

  7. Gives me inspiration to do a 3 tier one, thanks so much. I dislike using styrofoam because it never decomposes. I would love to do it using different round sizes like 12, 10, 8; so I need to ck if they come precut in those sizes.

    1. I love that idea! I'm not sure if they have all those sizes, but it's worth checking! And I completely agree on the styrofoam-yuck!

    1. You're welcome! I hope you give it a go - it's easy and you get to use power tools. ;)

  10. LOVE this idea! I'm doing a vintage train party for my son's 2nd birthday, so I think I'll just coat mine with a clear matte laquer for a more rustic look. Such a simple idea, but so effective!

  11. Awesome, awesome, awesome! I'm so tired of my styrofoam stands. I bought some plaques from Michaels to turn into cakepop stands--your walkthrough will be a big help! Thanks for posting it!
