Ha! I'm doing a 5 tier for Tuesday, I don't have time to order more and the tiers those missing plates were supposed to be on are crumbly chocolate and I'd rather not use dowels for those. The other sizes are sturdy vanilla and I could dowel those without worry. I'll be ordering more, but they won't help for Tuesday's cake.
I homeschool because I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children.
