I just bought a few marble tiles from Lowe's and when I was unloading them from the car one broke in half!!! Now I'm scared to put a cake on it (single tier). Was that one just defective? Anyone else use these? Thanks.
I think that would be so pretty. I would affix it to a piece of wood the same size just to be safe and to give it a little more strength.
Agreed, add some spare wood or a smaller cake drum underneath. It will also give you some room to get your finger tips underneath when you go to lift it and the cake.
I used a tile and it was fine! Especially for a one-tier, it should be fine.
I use a marble tile for single layer cakes all the time and love the way they look. Plus I smooth the cake right on there and the smooth surface is a dream for my bench scraper to make a glass like finish. I have not had any issues with them breaking but Have not used it for a stacked cake thus far. I would be interested in hearing if anyone has used them for a stacked cake.
affix it to a piece of plywood and run a ribbon around the edge!
This is such a great idea! I wish I would have thought of this a long time ago. We have a Habitat For Humanity Restore where people donate extra tiles and things like that. I always see marble tiles for under a buck. Again, thanks.
