Friday Frolic Post #13 – ‘Stained Glass’ Cake Plate

Welcome to Friday Frolics on a rainy Friday in New Mexico!

This little project is fun and easy with delightful results using things available from the local discount store’s craft department. Cake plates have almost become part of a by-gone era but I challenge you to find uses for this little beauty in your everyday routine.


2 Tubs Clear Multi-Color Plastic ‘pony’ beads (1500 per tub)
1 – 12” round cake or pizza pan (with lip)
1 – 3-6” glass candlestick
E6000 glue


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Pour beads into pan – spread out evenly. Make a design with the colors, if desired.
Bake beads for 30-40 minutes until they’re all melted.
Carefully remove the pan to a cooling rack – allow beads to cool in the pan (20-30 minutes).
Turn pan over to pop out the cooled disk.
Glue the candlestick to the center of the disk using the E6000 glue. Allow to ‘set up’ for 24 hours before use.

Enjoy your new cake plate this weekend!
