Hi All,

I just came from a cake tasting and the bride wants a 12" petal on pillars with 15" as the base. I'm afraid that with the weight of the 12" that it won't hold up and rather have a disater the day of her wedding I would like to let her know now if this can be done. Any suggestions would be great.

Hi you can use the hidden pillers and plates... they go directly into the cake and you don't need dowels..

What you should be 'afraid of' is how these sizes will look. Will there be other sizes used? OR is just a two tier creation? You are going to have to put that 12"er on a 15" plate so it is not going to look good (IMPO) - it will overpower the bottom tiericon_sad.gif
The weight (unless you are making cheesecake or fruitcake) is not a problem.
If you use the SPS it will be just fine.
If you use Wilton plates & pillars it still will be fine if you use enough & proper support.

Do you mean she wants the 12" cake on a 15" plate? Or she wants a 12" cake on top of a 15" cake?

The weight of the cake has nothing to do with anything. What holds up the cake is the support system. And a good support system will hold up a 3, 5, 7, or 12 tier cake.

HIdden pillars and plates would be my recommendation for you also.
