I am doing a wedding cake for a friends wedding next Sat, stacked 10 and 14 inch carrot cake with 8 inch on hidden pillars. I plan to stack the 10 and 14 Fri and it will be refrigerated till the 5 mile drive. I am planning on using a 16 inch round glass turntable plate from a microwave for the cake board. I made the cakes yesterday and it will weigh a lot. Will I have a problem using the turntable as a cake board? I had thought it was a great idea, seems really solid, looks good as it is clear and was cheap at Goodwill. Now I am wondering about its strength. Has anyone tried this before? Should I use a piece of plywood underneath it during carrying just in case then slide it onto the table? Thanks

As long as it's not the plate for your MW it will be perfect. Yes, it should be more than strong enough.
I wouldn';t put it on anything as it could easily slip off while carrying it.
