I buy the plates for a total of 1" (2.5 cm) bigger than the cake,so there is a 1cm border. I decorate with the cake assembled, to ensure that the decorations line up.
YES the pillars click into the plates...that is a great feature.
To take apart for delivery, you need 2 people. One person holds the lower tier at the edge of the plate with both hands, and the other person takes off the higher tier. You can put your hand under the plate and push straight up until the plate is off the pillars. The pillars stay in the top of each tier until the cake is cut.
I then put each tier onto a piece of clean rubber foam (covered with plastic wrap) set on a sheet pan. Foam has little holes cut into it for the feet under the plates. This is to keep the cake secure for delivery.
