I am making a cupcake tower for a friends wedding with a top tier cutting cake and i'm worried about the size of the top tier cake.
If the stand top itself is 6 inch do i make the top tier 6" and it fit snug on the top of the stand or do i sit a 4" cake on a 6" board and pop it up on top?
Alternatively do I go off piste completely and do a 6" cake on 7"/8" board and it hang over the edge slightly?
Any help will be welcome!
To me not being able to see the stand makes it's hard to answer. Most likely I would make a 6: cake on an 8" board. Have you tried setting up the stand then using styro or cake pans try which way looks best?
Thanks, I don't have any Styrofoam
Thank you for your help :-)
The last message didn't come out very well.
It was meant to say I don't have any Styrofoam but I have an image of the stand from the website. Does this help at all?
Thank you for all your help :)
Yes, that image does help a lot:) I still think going w/a 6" top on an 8" board would be just fine. Styro is easy to purchase in stores like MIchael's or Joann's fabric abd probably other $ type stores:).......... But unnecessary if you use the cake pan you will bake in. That will give you a visual enough to decide which way you want to go. Oh, ooh I just thought of something. You can put your 6" on a 6" board......then on that on an 8 or even 10 board. When ready to set up your stand just slip the cake & 6" board off the lgr one and set it on the stand and add a tiny border. Whether you use a 4 or 6 top make it just 3" tall. It will look much better than 4" tall (at least IMHO) :) Hope that helps.
