Hi, sorry if im repeating wuestions here! I'm a newbie, I only do cakes for family and have been asked to do a wedding cake! I'm doing an imbc square tiered cakes, 6-10-14". I will be using the hidden pillars and separator plates to create the floating appearance!

My question is this: what type and size boards should go under each tier? What about the board under all the tiers?

Are you sure you're ready to tackle this project?

You should use corrugated cake boards the same size as the cake under each tier, if you aren't using disposable separator plates and don't want knife cut marks on your plates.

You can use an 18" cake drum or covered plywood for the base board.

Thanks! I've done them all before just not tiered! I've also got plenty of time for this cake! So there is a lot of planning and practice!
