So, I was at walmart a few days ago and decided to pick up a couple different sizes of the Wilton cake platters.. I hadn't heard of them or used them so I got them to try out.. I have to say I am disappointed. I have a 10 inch cake I am making for someone on Saturday so I bought the 12 inch cake platters.. They are not sturdy at all.. I am a bit nervous putting a cake on one of these.... Has anyone else used these?? What did you do to improve the strength of them???
These are what I got, in the 12 inch and 8 inch,.
I've seen those and to me they're way too thin to put a cake on. I'm also not a fan of the scalloped edging, but that's beside the point.
I don't have any suggestions on improving the strength of them short of taping at least 3 of them together. I recommend sticking with the silver cake bases because they're thicker.
