This video shows how to make a cake pop stand from some 3mm thick pink Perspex frost. This is a simple project and can easily be made in less than one hour. You can easily make a line bending machine yourself- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XveHMbzbyYQ
The Perspex in this video was cut using the scribe break technique which can be used to break Perspex up to 4mm in thickness. Once cut to size the Perspex was drilled using a step drill as these work really well on Perspex or acrylic.
