Can a 3 or 4 tiered wedding cake be properly supported on a pedestal cake stand? The bottom tier being 12 or 14 inch? I see pics online with gorgeous cakes on beautiful stands but I'm wondering if that is safe? Or even possible, maybe those are just display cakes made out of styrofoam?
Large cakes can definitely be supported by pedestal cake stands. I have done it successfully with both metal and glass stands. If you have doubts, you can always load the stand with something a similar weight to check.
Keep in mind that if the pedestal has a small bottom, the cake will be more likely to tip over.
Thanks so much for posting that link! I am going to be in need of a larger diameter cake stand soon myself and wasnt finding anything that would support a !4" or wider bottom tier!
Oh - Love those cake stands. So cute!
Thanks! Those are lovely! A little more than I want to pay but cheaper than most of the stand companies I have found. Those are great.
