I am so excited for Thanksgiving this year! Are you gearing up for any Friendsgiving parties this season? Today, I will be sharing the tutorial for making a Layered Dessert Stand using a couple of plates! It’s a fun, easy project that is sure to make an impression on your dining table! This dessert stand will be loaded with my favorite new dessert biscuit: Tim Tams!
Did you know that Tim Tams are Australia’s favorite treat?! You can find Tim Tams at your local Target store and experience the rich, chocolaty taste for yourself! During the Thanksgiving season, I love gathering with family & friends and enjoying delicious food. I just know my guests will absolutely love the delicious taste of Tim Tams- I can’t wait to share it with them! After all, when a treat is as scrumptious as Tim Tams, it has to be shared among friends! So, be sure to invite some friends over and share this amazing biscuit with them!

DIY Layered Dessert Stand
So, here’s how to make this cute Layered Dessert Stand. Here’s what you’ll need:
- one large dinner plate
- one small salad plate
- high-strength glue
- ribbon or twine
- glittery washi tape
- glass candlestick
Start by using the glue to attach the candlestick to the center of the larger plate.
Next, add glue to the top of the candlestick and place the smaller plate on top.
Now, it’s time to make some decorative bows. Make one small simple bow.
Wrap the center of the bow with a small strip of glittery washi tape.
Make another one of these bows.
Secure the bows with a tiny dab of glue right to the edge of each plate.
I really love the way this dessert stand came out. The light blue color of the plates pairs so well with the navy blue tiny bows. I know this stand will make a few appearances on my dining table this year. During a recent trip to Target, I picked up two varieties of Tim Tams: Caramel and Dark Chocolate!
Before I loaded my dessert stand with Tim Tams, I had to try some of them. The Dark Chocolate variety features smooth cream, crunchy biscuits and a rich, dark chocolaty coating.
The Caramel variety is also a tasty treat! It features gooey caramel, crunchy biscuits and a milk chocolaty coating.
Now, it’s time to load up my dessert stand with Tim Tams. I love the great taste, convenience and affordability of these biscuits at Target!
Want to make your own dessert stand for Friendsgiving? You can personalize so many elements of this project, including the plate color, plate size, candlestick height, and so on.
I just know that this dessert stand is going to be put to good use this year! This makes a perfect display for my Tim Tams!
Did you know that Tim Tams have a pretty big fan base? Have you ever heard of the Tim Tam Slam, which is supposedly the best way to enjoy one of these biscuits? Simply bite off opposite corners of the biscuit, use it as a straw to drink a hot beverage (coffee, hot chocolate, etc.) and then pop the whole treat into your mouth! I have tried the Tim Tam Slam and I can personally confirm that this was the richest, most chocolaty bite I ever took! I am definitely a fan of the Tim Tam Slam!
Look for Tim Tams in the cookie aisle of your local Target store and experience for yourself the incredible taste of Australia’s favorite treat!
