In an effort to reduce and reuse before we moved, I made this three tiered wooden stand for our moving party to hold the cake and treats. It was an easy project and looked bright and pretty. I would love to make a whole slew of them in different sizes for an entire dessert bar one day.
To recreate the cake stand, use three old pieces of scrap wood and a pack of four small hardware wheels (mine were $3 a pack). Spray paint each of your boards to coordinate with your event and let dry overnight. Once dry, stack in order. Then turn the pallet stack over to screw in four wheels for stability and ease of movement. Use a few small dabs of wood glue on the inside of each piece to secure the pallets together. Let dry with a couple heavy books on top to set the stand.
