Cake Ball Stand

My 12 year old daughter wanted to serve cake balls for her birthday party.  I thought we could use something cute to present them on, so I made a merry little trip to the Dollar Tree.  (there is one right by our new house.  the lady that works there knows me now!  LOL)  Anyway, I've seen these little stands all over the web and have been waiting for a good excuse to make one.
What I bought:  a candlestick, a pack of 2 small candlesticks, and 2 plates.

And a feather duster.  That's not part of the necessary materials, but my son found it and we couldn't leave it there.  Look at it:

I digress.  I just hot glued the bigger solid pink plate onto the tall candlestick.  Then hot glued the small candlesticks together.  Then glue them onto the solid pink plate, and topped it off with the polka dotted plate.  I used hot glue because that's all I had for a super quick thing like this, but it will probably come apart eventually.  I would suggest E-5000 or something like that.

Note: after the party, everything came apart.  The hot glue was not a good long term solution.  I am going to re-glue with the E-5000.
