Multi-tiered foldout platter

Popup!

The foldout platter is made of waxed cardboard and comes flat. On expanding, fold out legs come out between each level. Each level is smaller than the previous, forming a pyramid shape. The legs are decorated as corinthian columns, flying buttresses, etc.

Use the foldout platter to make an impressive "cake" out of cupcakes, or to hold an assembly of different finger foods in an impressive space-efficient manner.

       clearly you've never worked in a theater. Never underestimate the strength of cardboard with a little gaff tape (duct tape is for losers).   

       [+] by the way.

       And drywall screws, never forget the drywall screws.   

       Roman Villa? I'll need twenty sheets of plywood, some drywall screws and paint.   

       Sixteen century Italy? I'll need twenty sheets of plywood, some drywall screws and paint.   

       Modern office? I'll need twenty sheets of plywood, some drywall screws and paint.

       2x4? Too heavy, use 1x2s or the 90 pound girl playing Juliet will never be able to push the balcony out for her big scene.   

       And I have never hear of visclean. Bowling alley cleaner?

       Visqueen is the brand name of a kind of plastic sheet. That may be what was meant.

       Yes - this is just like a popup book, except thicker cardboard, and you put cupcakes on it.
