Hi everyone,
I have a rather large square cake for the 31st and need to get square seperator plates for it. The tiers are going to be 16", 12", and 8" squares. I need a serving plate of some sort for the 16" tier, and seperators for th 12" and 8" tiers. I can find them in aboundance online, but I am nervous that I don't have enough time for them to come in before the wedding. Is there a store in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that would carry what I need?

I am doing a cake very similar to this one http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1179268 by confectioneista.

Thank you all so much. I really appreciate all the help and support I have received from everyone thus far.

Have a great day.

Wow, that looks like a really nice place, and I heard that their cake supplies are well stocked and at good prices.

Too bad it is so far away for me, I'd love to check it out.
Thanks, Diane.

why not make your own cake bases out of foam core and then just sit them on top of round seperator plates, attaching with some double sided carpet tape. the 16" cake could sit on an 18" or 20" foam core base that youve made that then sits ontop of a cake pan to give it the height for the roses. I also have cakes stands and im not too far from you.

Thanks sweetcakes. That is a great idea. I had wondered if there was a way I could just use my round seperators. Thank you for confirming my thoughts. I bet that would be way cheaper too than buying square seperators.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me. Now I have a few places to go hunting when it is not so urgent that I get something. Thank you so much. Ya'll are the best!

Thanks everyone.

I went with the idea of making my own with foamcore. It worked pretty well. Here is a link to where I posted the wedding cake. It was a monster. Definitely the largest I have ever done.

I didn't count them, but I am guessing it was about 4 dozen. I could have used about another dozen as well. The back was not filled in as full as I would have liked.

Thanks so much for your help.
