I have been meaning to show this to you for a while but you know how it is when you get busy! A few months ago, my microwave died. It just quit. It was for the best though because I love my new microwave, a pretty stainless steel GE model and it led me to come up with this.
When I tossed out the old microwave, I didn’t want to throw out the glass plate inside. It seemed such a waste. So, what I did was get two of these glass candleholders (you can find these for $1 at the dollar store or even cheaper at thrift stores) and glued (with amazing Goop) one to the bottom of the microwave plate.
Then I turned the other one upside down and glued it to the top of the microwave plate. I had another smaller glass tray used for candles but I no longer use it. I glued it to the second candleholder.
Voila- a pretty tiered dessert tray! It’s perfect for displaying cupcakes, cookies,and other yummy treats.
On display here are the cupcakes I made for the kids on Friday for their afterschool snack.
I just used white cake mix and egg whites (no yolks) for a fluffy white cake, vanilla frosting, and sprinkles (for those who like sprinkles). The cupcake liners came from the dollar store. They were devoured shortly after these photos were taken.
Please see my link party list for all of the other great parties I will be linking this post to!
