My sister and I are making a wedding cake for friends of my mom's. They want to use the Wilton floating tiers cake stand (http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=53DB6018-423B-522D-F3485F050603680D&fid=53DB6028-423B-522D-FBD0DB93D4F0D68. They want square cakes. I know the stand will hold a 14, 10, and 6 inch round but what about the squares? Is it sturdy enough to hold larger cakes (with boards under them obviously) like a 16, 12, and 8? Any tips and advice on using this stand with square cakes will be appreciated! Thanks so much!
just bumping up the thread to see if I can catch someone's eye....
Take your cake pans and put them on the stand. As I remember you cannot get a 16 on because of the brace in the back - especially since the board will be 18".
I have this stand. Can't answer to the square question, but as far as the holding up part, when you get ready to cut the cake, the bottom cake will be removed. As I see it, that leaves a lot of weight hanging out there in the upper two cakes. I removed the other cakes just to be on the safe side. I am overly cautious though!! LOL!!
