When you are using separator plates for raised tiers, do you set the cake right on the plastic or do you put it on a cardboard round first?

leahs has a thread on this, i just bought them too, If i heard right you do use a card board, but you have to take the board and the little sharp thing on the plate you need to poke a hole in the cardboard , then make it a little bigger so as to when you set your cake on it it will hold it, Look on the sticky notes as you first log on,

Ok, but not the SPS system, I'm talking about the old school separator plates and I just need to know if you place the cake directly on the plate or if you put the cake on a cardboard round like you would with a stacked cake and then on the plate...

Im sorry, I think they still set on the plate, Use some icing to glue the cardboard onto the plate, In other words, take a dolop of icing and put it on to the separater plate then put your cake that is sitting on a cardboard on to the separater plate, and push it down on to the icing, so it will take hold, Hope this helps(:
