I hope someone can tell me how much weight I can put on a glass cake plate. The wedding cake will be two double rounds. The cake plate is 13" wide. I'm thinking of baking two 13" rounds, 3" deep with filling and two 9" rounds, again with filling. That is going to be heavy and I wonder if the glass plate will hold it. It's one of the real typical glass plates that has the pedestal of glass below the plate. And usually comes with a cover, anchor hocking brand.
Will it hold this heavy cake?
it should... it would be really cheap if it didn't
I don't know why it wouldn't, but I would have a back-up plan just in case. Be sure to put your base cake on a cake board and not directly on the glass so that you can change your base if needed.
Well it depends. I always always use pedestal stands and I've never had anything tip over. I even made a 5 tier cake + topper on a pedestal stand.
Ok, I'll go ahead with it. I'll use the cake board under lower cake and hope for the best! Thanks;
Maybe you could stack some encyclopedias or other heavy objects on it and just test it out. My daughter weighs about 55 lbs., so I'd maybe even let her try to stand on it.
