Make this Galvanized Cake Stand

I’ve collected each part of this project over time. I was so excited to find several old pie tins, I knew exactly what I’d do with them.

How to make a galvanized cake plate


  • Cheese Dome (How many of these do you see every time you go to Goodwill!!)
  • Metal Pie Pan
  • Metal Bucket (This el-cheapo is from Ikea)
  • E6000 Glue – this stuff is strong!

Tip: When you have a shiny metal bucket, soak it overnight in vinegar to age it. I’ve also heard you can use toilet bowl cleaner or oven cleaner to age metal – I have not tried these. Do not use any of these methods together, choose one!

Easy peasy – apply the E6000 glue to the bottom of the bucket and attach it to the pie pan. Let it dry.
