I'm entering a local competition next month. I have a couple of designs drawn up that I'm considering. The cake has to be at least 24" tall from top of board to top of cake. I'm currently looking at a 12/10/8/6/4" tiers. Other than varying the heights of the cakes, and maybe adding 1" tall tiers that are slightly smaller diameter than the tier above, what do you recommend to add height? Just want to make sure I'm not missing any of the known tricks out there. icon_smile.gif

TIA!

Are pillars or spacers allowed, or does it have to be all cake?

I actually just asked my contact that same question.. she's part of the organization of the event so hopefully she can tell me. icon_smile.gif It's my first competition so I'm nervous and coming up with all sorts of questions lol. Thankfully dummies are allowed! Takes a bit of the edge off of worrying about real cake issues

You should receive a copy of the rules, or have access to read the rules online.

I do, but the only things it specifies as far as the cake are:
-24"-36" inches in height
-cake boards clean, greaseless, with coordinating foil or covering
-must fit on 30"x30" or smaller display
-dummies acceptable, but must be reproducible in real cake
-edible decor preferred, non edible may be used but will not be included in judging
