DIY: Satin cake platform.



Shown in Tuesday's moss + robin's egg blue palette, this platform is an easy way to add a little color detail to your cake table. Follow these easy steps and contact me (by leaving a comment) if you have any questions. You're on your own, however, to find the fabulous cake! ;)

  1. Purchase an unfinished wooden platform. There are many available on ebay, but you might also check your local lumber supplier. If you have a handy fiance, you can also put him to work and cut one from scratch. ;) The platform should be 1-2 inches larger than the base of your cake.
  2. Cover the platform with a non-toxic craft paint. The above example was painted white.
  3. Cut a piece of heavy satin ribbon to the correct length by wrapping it around the edge of the platform. Make sure to purchase a ribbon the same width as the height of your platform. Before cutting, add a bit of extra length to later create a slight overlap at the beginning and end of the ribbon.
  4. Adhere ribbon to the platform using crafter's glue. Smooth out glue before placing ribbon to avoid any unsightly bumps. Allow ample drying time before adding your cake to the top. Good luck!
