I have a request from a bride to do a wedding cake with a 14 inch base cake...wants a silver cake plateaus...I have found a pretty one that is 14 inch in diameter...that won't work will it? Do you need a base bigger than the cake...say for 14 inch a base that is 16 inch? Hope this question makes sense.
Anyone know a good place to buy them without costing an arm and a leg?
check ebay for plateaus
Yes, for a 14" base cake, your plateau should be 16"-18".
I was lucky enough to have a fellow-decorator in the next town lend me one!
I wish I could find one real cheap.
I would love to use one of those on my son's wedding cake.. I don't want to buy one, because what would you ever do with it when you were done?
I don't do cakes for anyone else.
I make the brides rent one from a rental company and drop it off at the reception venue. Cake plateaus not just not my job.
Just FYI I jsut got 2 I ordered from save on crafts and the rectangle one is HORRIBLE...bent, warped, does not sit right, and the seems are terrible! Plus now I see they do not refund to or from shipping. They were cheap, but that is exactly what I got!
acookieobsession. so sorry that you got burnt, but glad to know that it was too good to be true. I paid alot more but I did get quality plateaus.
I love plateaus, I have a thing for them, I just wish I could afford to have a bunch of cool ones. Saw some incredible designs on an Australian site, but they don't ship to the US.
so cake queen where did you get yours? I am obviously on the hunt for quality ones.....
I see you are in GA...did you get it at cake art? I saw they had some when i was there last...
Man! I don't want to deal with those... ask them to rent it. You have to be sure you have it on the correct weekend, deliver it, make sure it is returned on time for the next wedding, store it, polish it, etc. Not what I want to spend my time on.
I get mine from Jack at this website. He is so helpful on all of his products.
JMO, but I would rather rent them to people only because I HATE HATE HATE when I ask the bride if she wants gold or silver foil, she says gold, I deliver the cake and not only is the plateau SILVER, but it is too small ROUND under a square gold foiled cake! It just makes my cake look bad...I guess I am kind of anal about that.
This is where I got mine from - www.galasource.com. Make sure you get a hefty security deposit. I also wrote in sharpie on the underside "property of ...... and the phone number". Good luck!
I also got mine at www.weddingcakestands.com and was very pleased with his service!!!
