From the blogger: "All of the materials for these gorgeous cake stands can be bought from IKEA, making them very affordable. The glass plate on the top of the cake stand is decoupaged with paper napkins. Therefore, you can make a cake stand in any design you want as long as it is on a paper napkin. For example, you could make a Christmas cake stand platter by using Christmas napkins. Since the design can be customized, these cake stands/platters would make a fantastic gift. They also make great party platters and look good just sitting out on the table as part of the decor."
