I am making a fondant covered 6 tiered dummy wedding cake. Two of the tiers will be separated with silk flowers. I have been told to use smaller pieces of styrofoam instead of pillars to separate these layers. How do I finish the bottom of the upper layers that will be seen? Should I just bring the fondant all the way around and cover it completely? Or, is there some sort of plate...without legs...I can put it on?

I dont' cover the bottoms and I have a 6-tier dummy cake in my window. Will the flowers completely fill in the space? If so, no one will be able to see the bottom anyway.

Yes, I plan on filling the open space with flowers. Do you use styrofoam to separate your layers? And...just cut off the bottom of the fondant like you normally would? Are your layers on cake circles or anything? Thank you for your help.

If I use the styro spacers (like on my halloween cake), then I don't use anything. If I use pillars, I'll put the upper tier on a plate so the legs fit inside the pillars.
