I'm making a 6", 10", 14" square tiered cake and I was just wondering what size the base should be.
My brother's making it out of plywood and I was thinking 18X18...is that a good size??? or should it be bigger???
That sounds about right. That will give you 2 inches on each side of the cake for borders, etc. Depending on what type of design you are doing you may even want to go bigger.
That size should be okay....it will give you approximately 2" on each side of the bottom cake. If you look at a lot of the pictures posted on CC it looks like most bakers use a little more (more like 4" on each side)
Here is a cake I did same size as your's, I used a 16 inch cake drum covered in white. The board under that is 18 sqare that was removed later.
Thanks for the input guys! The two inches looks pretty nice...I thought it would look too small....
We'll see what I decide....
