Yeah, I don't think it's going to fit either. If she is set on this stand, which is cool, I would offer a few round satellites - kind-of how I did my anniversary cake.

For cake for 150, I'd use a 16/12/8 and this stand says it will hold those sizes. I think it will fit.

I'm curious as to what you mean by that. Are you talking about the height of the cakes? icon_confused.gif

i think she means that it looks like its for a 2" cake per tier. But her wedding cake is going to be 2lyers per tier + filling. so i think they would be too tall for the stand and would touch the top and sides especially since the sides are rounded. bc I want to use 8,12,16 sizes to get her the amount she needs

I used a stand similar to this for one of my first wedding cakes. I will post the link. I used 14, 10, and 6 and had no problems at all. My tiers were composed of 2-2" layers of cake with filling and they fit just fine. I think you could probably use the sizes you are wanting without a problem. But, if you are "a-skeered" (as we say in KY....well, SOME places in KY! LOL) use the satellite cake idea someone suggested. That is what I did and it worked great!

Here is the link to give you an idea. If you can't get it the cake is May Wedding in my photos.

Good Luck!

Just a thought here. It says "Fitted with 18mm (3/4" ball feet)."

If the feet alone are almost an inch across/high/wide.....if you extend those proportions, you will have NO PROBLEM fitting a regular 4 inch tall cake (with lots of decorations on top) on that stand.

Or if you look at the ring sizes....that centre ring is 9 inches across. Flip it vertical, and you should have more than enough room for anything, practically.

this is a 14-10-7, you can see how much room there is left on each side.

well she decided she wants the two 9" cakeson the side of the wedding cake, bc she didnt want bulky looking cakes on it she wants it to look like they are floating so im going to do 6,9,12 cakes sizes and put the other cakes next to it.

That will look nice! I think the others would have looked nice too. But, think of it this way, you won't have to deal with the BIG OLE cakes! LOL
