Do any of you still use the Wilton crystal clear cake stand? I've just acquired one and don't know much about it. The set includes solid white plates (smooth on top) and the legs are clear, pop into the bottom of each plate. The set is older I think. The box says Crystal Clear Cake Dividers.
If anyone has used this system and has any thoughts on how it compares to the systems Wilton now has available please do share. icon_wink.gif

I have the same ones, but my plates are clear. I love love love the fact that you don't have to use the dowels. I think I saw one in the galleries used as a cupcake stand....lots of possibilities.

You can have squares of acrylic cut.  You also need some acrylic tube to slice up to fit over the legs.  The legs are sold separately. Glue the slices of tube underneath on the squares where you want the pillars to go.  These tubes are how you make this thing interlock when it has been set up with cake.

 

I did this and it worked like a charm.  No dowels, no mess, I made mine for a hexagonal cake with 6 legs per tier.
