I am meant to be making a 3 tier wedding cake on Pillars but the cake will be sponge the sizes are 10" 8" and 6" and I am really worried that as it is sponge the cake will collapse and it will be a VERY big disater can anyone help me with any ideas etc please
Sponge cakes are usually more sturdy.That's what they recomend you use for carved cakes because they hold up better.I wouldn't think you would have a problem using it for a wedding cake but I'm sure someone else will chime in with more info. for you.Good luck!
thank you for your reply, I thought it would be too much weight for the bottom sponge as there will be 6 pillars plus the 2 cakes that will be on 12mm boards, I just really do not want to have a disater
as long as use, the correct supports within the bottom two cakes, I see no reason why you should have disaster x
What cake supports would you recomend ?
You still need to use dowel rods.I normally use the wilton plastic ones,just because they are bigger and I have better luck cutting them straighter.You can go to wilton.com and it shows you the proper way to assemble a pillared cake.Sorry I don't know how to post links but it would be found in the wedding cakes section.
the sps system is great! I have had less worries using this system. Theres a sticky note in the topics section on it. Leah_s hipped us to it and I've never looked back since! Good Luck!
