Ok, so I got a request for a 5 tier cascading wedding cake to feed 250. I am having a lot of trouble finding cascading cake stands that will hold enough cake to feed that many people. All of the stands I find are usually sized: 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 or 8, 10, 10, 12, 14. Either way is not enough cake. I guess I could also offer to throw in an extra cake for the kitchen, but I was wondering if there would be a way to do this without having to do that.
Any suggestions?

Sure. You place the big cake on the table in the middle, then use doubles of the other sizes on either side with varying heights and then the 6" goes on the highest stand in the middle behind the big cake.

Let me go look for a picture.

Oh I grabbed that picture off the net. I do not do that style of cake. Too "Wilton-y" for my taste.

Actually if you just put a 16 on the table, then use the stair step plates you should be right in the ball game for the #s you need.
Then the set up would have a 16"; 14, 12, 10, 8, & 6 which should serve around 299.
