I am doing a small wedding cake this weekend (eight inch bottom and six inch top). The bride's sister dropped off the cake stand yesterday, it's a heirloom piece that is just beautiful, it belonged to her grandmother. However, I noticed today that the cake stand is not level! It's about a half inch higher on one end than on the other, and the edges are all a little wonky. It's a ceramic one piece stand, so there is no way of adjusting it.
I'm worried that if I make the cake all nice and level and then place it on the stand, it's going to look crooked and slanted. It's a simple design, white with some orange roses and grey flowers on top and on the side of the tier, so I'm thinking I can camouflage any slants with flowers, but I'm still nervous. Any suggestions?
can you post a photo of the stand?
AI have a new Martha Stewart stand that is the same way! It drives me crazy because no matter what I do the cake looks crooked!! Paid $50 for it but pretty sure it's going in the trash!!!
AIs it possible to use a shim of sorts to make it appear level once the cake is on the stand? Perhaps a bit of folded non slip matting or paper towel.
