Hello,

I'm doing my first wedding cake on Saturday! Yikes!!! For those who have done wedding cakes displayed on stands, do you put any icing between the bottom board and the stand for stability? It is a 6-8-10 tiered cake and the stand is 12" in diameter. I had planned to put the bottom tier on a 12" board, but I am concerned about sliding.

ANy tips?

THanks,
Paula

are you talking about the free standing acrylic stands, like in these pics?

If so, no I don't. I just set the cake on the top of the stand.

What a beautiful stand! That looks even more stable than the acrylic ones, so I'd definitely say you wouldn't have to "glue" the cake down on it.
