cake boards

50 years ago, my Mom had a "cake board" which she used for everyone's birthday. It was ~16" in diameter,about 3/8" thick, handpainted with holes around the perimeter for candles. The candles were ~ 8-10" tall and about the diameter of a traditional birthday candle. She would put the # of candles appropriate for our ages or (as we grew older)use 3 candles for "past","present" & "future". I would like to revive this tradition for my grandchildren but am unable to find a board. Even a plain wooden board would be ok and I could have it handpainted. Any suggestions?
