So if you click on the link - you will see a bottom tier, then the middle and top tier separated by ONE pillar in the middle .... can you really do this? Will it hold?
My middle and top tier is an 8/6".... does anyone have any feedback on this? Thank you
I believe that cake is made using the Wilton Tall Tiers Cake Stand. Not sure if they're still available. Perhaps, if not, you could check on EBay.
This is a special cake stand. Google wilton towering cake stand or tall tiers cake stand. And yes they can be found on ebay. You would not be able to balance any type of cake on a single pillar that small unless the separator plates are attached (bolted or screwed on) to the pillar in some way. The cakes on the bottom have a hole in the center and they fit over the single pillar.

The Towering Tiers Stand is currently out of stock at Wilton ($99.99), but if you can locate one, here are the directions for construction:
Wow, thank you! I had *no* idea this would be some kind of special pillar ... sounds like I need a plan b Can I get a way with 2 pillars to support the top tiers, or do I have to use 4? (I am new to the world of pillars) Is there a pillar set in particular that anyone uses and recommends for ease of use/looks good etc that I could use to support the top 2 tiers? Thanks
