Ok I just got a call for a cake for Nov 13th. The client wants a tipsy turvy cake with 4 tiers. I was a little worried at first because I already have 4 major cakes for the same weekend but took the order any ways figuring I will just push myself. I don't really need to see my dh or lids that week anyways. Now she calls and asked me if I could possible make the entire cake rotate. At first I said no but she gave me an offer I couldn't refuse --- a ridicules amount of $$$$$. Now I am panicking never did this. Can someone give me a website where I cam get such a base that turns. Figuring the cake might weight 50 lbs or more. PLEASE HELP!!! Don't you love a good challenge?

I once used a rotating dessert stand from WalMart.. it was made by GE i think..was 3 tiers, but you can take it apart.... maybe take a peek around your local store...

Rotating Christmas tree stand? Stereo turntable?

restaurant supply would be your best will be able to buy or rent one with ease....and it will hold the weight of the cake and be solid weight on table, less likely to tip over icon_smile.gif

O tried the stereo turntable but won't hold weight. Now I'm on the hunt for the tree stand. Thanks for the good idea. Will post when I figure out what I will be using. Hope this works
