Here's a DUH question for you--why are your ordering larger that the cake size. I thought you order the exact size when you are stacking. The border would be just piped on the cake when it is stacked. I am going to be ordering this soon and would like to know what I should be ordering.

Thank you.

my concern was if i get a 10 inch plate for a 10 inch cake round... will the icing/fondant slide off or do i need like an 11 inch? or, is it the norm to have a little of the plate showing like a cake board... 2 inches larger than your cake. ANYONE?

If your tiers are pillared you buy 2" larger; if they are stacked, you buy the same size.

Even if they are pillared, you would get the same size...why would you want a plate showing? Or am I not understanding something....

And...the cake for the SPS system. It is 2 tier and is it's own thing...sitting by itself? Then you only need one 8" plate and 4 legs. The 8" plate and legs jam into the 10" cake which doesn't need any support itself.

top tier is 10 inches, second tier is 12 inches, that is placed on stacked 14 and 16 inch cakes. need pillars between 10 and 12 and 12 and 14.

Oh...totally not understanding you then, because you said in your original post, you need it for 8 and 10" rounds.

Thank you for your replies. I now know that whatever cake size I am making that is the plate size I will buy!

Thanks again.
