Was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a turntable for a 3-tier cake? Would appreciate any help!
I saw one on Ebay but it ships from Hong Kong and would arrive here in March, but I need it in 2 weeks!
Also, does anyone know how much the weight would be of a 3-tier cake (6"/8"/10") Chocolate cake filled with buttercream and some small decorations.
Trying to see what weight would be okay to spin on a turntable. Thank you so much!
AAre you looking for a turn table or a cake stand? Not an expert in tired cakes, but if I have more than one tire, I ice them individually on a turn table first and THEN stack them on a cake stand or board. Just trying to figure out what your plan is...
Sorry...Should've explained it better! Looking for a motorized (electric or battery-operated) cake stand so I can make the cake rotate.
I've seen the Karousel one but it's expensive!!!
I just found one on Amazon, for displaying model cars, but trying to figure out how many lbs a 6/8/10 cake would be, so I can see if it'll fit on that?
Model cars are very light weight, no where near the weight of a cake. It's the motor that determines the spinning speed. Just because the stand can support the weight of a cake 45+lbs, doesn't mean the motor can handle turning it.
I found this on another bakery's website about what their cakes weigh: http://www.mayfairbakery.com/products/3-cakes/16-servings-chart I'm not sure if it's average or not, but it's a place to start.
Thank you!!! So based on an estimate, the cake will weigh about 9-10 lbs. Any idea where I could find a rotating stand?
Anything that will be able to rotate a 3 tier cake (weight!) will be expensive. Some larger art pieces have display turntables, and that may be another source. But I bet it will still be expensive.
omg.. you are amazing!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!! so much!!
Hope it works out for you. Also, did you see that this one rotates very slowly, only 1 RPM (revolution per minute). Just keep that in mind as you select. Good Luck!
