CAKE PLATE - CHEAP, VERY CHEAP

I absolutely adore cake plates.  I mean, I am crazy about them.  I don't really know why since I rarely make cake.  I suppose I like having the different levels when I'm displaying seasonal decorations, candles, plants,  and yes, occasionally, food.  I think I've started collecting them, but I can't be sure since I don't know what the official number is to constitute a collection.  I only have five.  It's not because I don't want more. I'm just too cheap.  And cheap is not so bad if you're clever.  I am clever, and I'm here to share my clever cake plate. 
Materials Needed:  glass and plate from The Dollar Store, E600, misc. junk
I want to mention that the plate's groove fits exactly around the glass.  How neat is that?
Cost of Project:  $2
Instructions:  self-explanatory

You obviously don't have boys! Delicate little girls fingers reaching out for a muffin versus brutish boy fingers knocking the beautiful plate off the glass!! LOL!! Love the idea though. Might even try it. Probably for a girl birthday! :o)

I just so happen to have a black plate from the dollar store and a pewter candlestick from a thrift store sitting on my kitchen counter to make just that ~a homemade cake stand~ and then I am planning on displaying cupcakes on it for my daughter's birthday party.
Thanks for sharing.
