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! 


Thanks!

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?

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.
