Just in case you might want to make one yourself, I'll give some instructions.
You can also add a dish for bigger dips. If you are worried about the bowl or cup getting knocked off the plate, you can secure it with a bit of plasti-tac...the same stuff teachers use to hang posters on the wall.....
I thought I had an entire set of Christmas dishes on Craigslist....but alas, someone beat me to the $25.00 bargain.
Wouldn't these be pretty using an assortment of Christmas dishes?
You could get different sizes of candle holders and do some like what I've done and also, just glue the dinner plate to the TOP of the candle holder for more of a cake stand effect.
Oh, and you know those cheese ball things with the glass cover you can get for a dime a dozen at a thrift store.....you could use it to cover a CUPCAKE on a plate.....OH....yeah, I'm heading right now to see if it would work on this plate.......
What are you doing still reading this.....go MAKE YOU ONE!!!
What about putting THREE.....yes, THREE candle holders on the bottom of a dinner dish....what a pretty cake holder!!!! Then you could add a decorative something underneath...like a small flower arrangement.....a picture in a frame....small, of course....

Happy 25th Anniversary!!!!
Ok, I had this in the draft section and forgot to get it posted. This is to my sister, Julie, who has been married for 25 years!!! Above, you will see that I created an ornament for her Christmas tree.....she LOVES decorating for Christmas. I didn't want to give her the standard silver anniversary gift....frame, clock, plate, etc. The ornament has 25 on the dress, their name on the bottom of the dress and the date on the back. I put it in a special SILVER box...yeah, wasn't that creative? I told her she has to KEEP it in the box......that way it will be protected....yeah, that's it.....
Here is there BEFORE and NOW pictures......aren't they cute?
Ok, these two little yep...red heads are her twin grandsons.....there is an older red head...but, for some reason, I didn't get a good picture of him. It couldn't possibly be because HE WON'T STAND STILL....no, that couldn't be the reason Auntie Traci couldn't get a picture of him.
Cake eatin' smoochin' time......
This is Laura....she is the daughter. She helped plan this SURPRISE party. They also have a son, Levi, who was out of town at work. He is married to Brittany, who also planned this lovely SURPRISE party......I could NOT get a GOOD picture of her by herself....because she was chasing the OLDER red head who wouldn't stand STILL. She is in a picture below.......
This is my mom, Laura (in the middle)...I KNOW...she could pass for our sister couldn't SHE?.....
Terri is to the left, Julie in the back and ME to the right.
Mom with MOST of her grandchildren.....missing is Levi, Carly, Sydni....did I get everyone? Oh, and that is Brittany in the back CENTER.....w/ the glasses.
This is Julie and Donald w/ his parents, Donald Sr. and Doris
Yep, had to throw this picture in......dear niece got TWO tattooes.....and it was raining that day.....so, another use for SARAN WRAP. This is her showing them off.....we won't have her show the other ones from previous trips to the "parlor"....tee heee.
