DIY do-it-yourself cake stand
(with video - in group videos)

Do-it-yourself cake support — plays one of the important roles in transporting and serving any cake. The cake can be served on a regular cardboard backing, but if it is a large and heavy cake, it will be very uncomfortable, as well as the possibility of bending the backing will increase. To do this, it is best to use a cake stand made of durable materials. We offer you a master class in the manufacture of a cake stand made of polystyrene foam, double-sided tape and a substrate for the cake.

To make the substrate we need:

1. Expanded polystyrene - is a gas-filled material obtained from polystyrene and its derivatives, it is much more durable and easier to use and use than polystyrene, one of the main advantages is that it does not crumble and is very durable. The cost of one sheet in the store is approximately 22-30 UAH. Expanded polystyrene is sold in sheets of various thicknesses 20mm, 30mm. we need 20 mm thick polystyrene foam for the substrate, by the way there is polystyrene foam light blue and orange, orange is more durable and can withstand more cake weight,
2. Double-sided tape - must be taken with a width of approximately the thickness of expanded polystyrene. It is relatively thick and thin, it’s best to take thin,
3. Substrates for cake - simple substrates made of food two-sided cardboard.
4. Construction knife
5. Scissors.

Step by step
1. Using scissors, cut strips from two sided tape and glue on the substrate for the cake,
2. Remove the upper part from the double-sided tape,
3. Glue on a sheet of expanded polystyrene and press it along the edges, and then in the middle,
4. We take a construction knife and cut polystyrene foam along the contour of the substrate,
5. We glue the double-sided tape on the rim of the polystyrene foam (for sticker tape).

After that, you can put a cake on this stand and fit it with mastic. Cut the mastic around the edges with a knife. Then glue the tape. After all the manipulations, such a cake stand comes out.
