Here is the promised follow up to my final cake meeting.
I told you all I had to make a cake stand for my monstrous cake. The base had to measure 20" across. So I went out to my dad's shop and found a piece of 3/4" plywood.
All it took was drawing a circle on the wood and then cutting it out with a jigsaw. My dad AND Mr. T both tried to take over my project multiple times, but I was determined to do it myself. It only took about 5 minutes to get it done.
I forgot to take a picture of the cut circle, but afterward I covered it in tinfoil for the cake to set on and then wrapped the edge with ribbon to finish it off.
I'm pretty proud of my project, because it's the first time I've actually used the jigsaw. Normally I just watch and supervise.
I can't wait to see it in action at the wedding!
Did you guys use any new tools for wedding projects?
