Can I use a Wilton separator plate as a cake base?

You can, but I think they look tacky.

It's for my 7 year old's birthday party so it doesn't have to be perfect. I was going to cover the top and normal and not worry about the feet

I have used them before and i think depending on the cake that they can be kinda cute...the plain round ones work as good as the cardboard ones i have seen and look alot better!

that's what we used for the base of all wedding cakes. I've used them a few times lately. It's easy to place greenery around the base and the 1" legs are great for being able to tuck florals under the plate. the cake and the plate should be the same size, in my opinion, so you don't hvae all of that "white plate" showing.

Not a great cake pic, but here's one that was on a wilton cake plate:

I don't typically, but i did on this cake. I just covered the plate with the wilton gold foil. It worked well for me
