Ok - I haven't been doing this long but I should certainly know the answer to this question but I don't - I think I might but... icon_redface.gif What guidelines or rules do y'all go by for a cake board size? If the cake is 8" use an 8" board or 10" or does it depend if you are using a decorative stand or base? I appreciate everyone's input as always

For tiered cakes, I use the same size cake board as the cake (8" for an 8" cake, etc.) on the top tiers. The bottom tier is the exception. It varies, but I like to go at least 2" bigger for the bottom tier than what the bottom cake is. I still use this formula if I have a plateau stand.

What do you know! I have my next cake planned exactly this same way - I just couldn't decide if the same size for the small ones would work okay. Thanks a BUNCH! icon_biggrin.gif
