How do I raise up the Wilton Roman Column set to make room for satellite cakes tucked halfway underneath?
The bride wants a three-tiered cake (16, 12, on top of the Roman Column Set with a fountain between the two plates separated by the columns.
She wants all of that raised up (how can you support something so heavy?) and six 8-inch 2-layer cakes tucked a bit underneath the bottom plate.

They have directions there but I still don't understand how to make the cakes secure. Would hate for them to fall over!!! HELP!!
The blocked portion of the url is s _ _ _ _ c _ _ _ _. Hope it's okay to give this hint.
The fountain stand plate is 18" across. Sit it on top of a 14" or 16" styrofoam dummy. I'd put a piece of no-skid material on top of the dummy for extra insurance, although I'm sure you'd be ok without it (but use it anyway).
This will raise the entire cake, including the fountain, up 4" so you can tuck a slightly-less-than-4" cake just under the edge.
Thank you for the reply. That make sense. I'll order a 16 inch styrofoam dummy soon.
