    Take a candle holderĀ and a plate, which you will use to create your own pedestal dessert platter. The style and material of the plate and candle holder does not matter. It only depends on your preference; what type of items you want to use.

    You should be very careful when choosing the size of the candle holder, according to the size of the plate and the weight of the dessert that you would like to serve on the platter.

    If the candle holder is too small, compared to the size of the plate and does not have the ability to hold a heavy dessert, then it may break or can get unbalanced when a heavy dessert will be placed on the platter.

    Apply a layer of hot glue on the surface of the candle holder and then fix plate over it. Make sure that the plate is centred and the right side is facing up. Push the plate downwards, in order to get it placed well. Try to place something over it, which will apply some weight, while the glue gets dry. It will allow the plate to stick well with the candle holder.
