I love how elegant tall cakes look but I don't think it's elegant to have a slice of cake that is 5.5 inches tall and barely fits on the plate!
So I am wondering what everybody uses to make the cakes taller.
My cakes are usually 4 inches tall and I would like for then to be 5 inches tall. To buy styro dummys for all my cakes would just be too expensive. I noticed in one episode of the Amazing cakes that the Cake Girls had a stack of cardboard rounds under their cake making them taller. Does anybody does that?

No, you go ahead and make the cake tall, with actual cakes, then alter the way you cut the cake. Being that it is taller, it will have more servings. So, what you do is cut the cake in half cross ways, then cut as usual, just like you would a wedding cake. Account for the extra cake when charging people.
