Step 1: Using a tape measure, take the diameter of the plate, using your pen to mark the middle of each plate/teacup where you will drill the hole.
Step 2: Find a place to drill your plates that is secure and a surface that won’t matter if the drill goes through. Pop on your safety goggles.
Step 3: Add a drop of water on each plate as you are drilling to keep the plate and drill-bit cold, then slowly and carefully drill each plate until you have a perfect hole.
Step 4: For tier 1 start with the large dinner plate, put a washer (found in the cake stand fitting you purchased) underneath the plate and one on top of the plate and using a screwdriver turn the bottom screw into the plate. Apply the cake stand fitting and repeat until all three of the stand fixings have been attached.
Step 5: Tie some ribbon at the top and add a bow. Your cake stand is now ready to take pride of place at your tea party.
