Cake pop stand made from pink Perspex frost effect

Angie often makes cake pops for her friends/parties etc.

Her current cake pop stands are often full, so I made her another one. This is a relatively simple project and only took about an hour from start to finish.

I didn't know they were called cake pops either until yesterday.

I thought I was making a lolly stand :lol:

Hi,

Nice job Chez; well done. You've got bending Perspex off to a fine art. Decent video as well as a bonus. :thumbleft:

http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/forum1/bed-for-dolls-made-from-perspex-sparkle-t77386.html

Whilst working at Brook Motors I've shrink wrapped thousands of electric motors using an industrial shrink wrapping machine. At the front end the motor was placed on a piece of plywood and pushed through thereby forming a polythene loop around the motor; the sliding bar was then operated by pressing the start buttons; two buttons for safety to keep both hands occupied; the bar then came down and remained tightly over the folded polythene; two heating elements sealed the polythene whilst another cutting element cut through releasing the now loosely wrapped motor; the two open ends of polythene were then stapled by hand and the motor then pushed forward onto the conveyor to be carried through the oven. I once timed myself and wrapped 253 motors of assorted frame sizes from 100 to 180 frames in five hours; slave labour is alive and well?



The shrink wrapper I used was much bigger than the one shown in the video. Watching you use the resistance wire Chez brought back the memories of sheer hard graft.

Kind regards, Col.
