My BTB asked for five 8" cakes-the main cake with topper is to be iced in bc and she wants a lilac colored ribbon around the base to match the wedding colors. For the 4 other cakes, she wants a carrot cake with cream cheese icing, chocolate cake with choco bc, white cake with bc, and a cheesecake.

Im trying to think of some way to make them all kind of belong together...and look elegant. i was thinking of getting the wilton fillable pillars and setting each cake up on those, filled with lilac pearls or something....but beyond that-my mind is blank.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

ETA: this is my first wedding order, so i am really wanting to impress!!

Am I understanding that you're thinking of using the fillable pillars for five 8" cakes.

The fillable pillars are interesting:

But, I think that five equally sized cakes stacked up like a a column is going to be really odd looking - but that's just MHO.

Think that cascading cake stands would be much more attractive for same sized cakes:

Actually, i was thinking of having the 4 cakes on the 4" pillars and the cake with topper kind of in the center of those on the 6" pillars. I do like the cascading idea better-but i am finding that the sets like that all graduate in plate size...which i can't use since all the cakes will be 8". Maybe if I use the 10" decorator plates with one directly on the table then thte others on 3" 5" and 7" pillars?...two would have to be the same height...do you think that would work?
