Tier Cakes are really not my forte, I was asked to make a “wedding like cake” for 100 guests The most I would do is a two layer cake

You could use different height stands and place one cake on each to give the effect of a tiered cake but not actually having to worry about the support necessary for a tiered cake.

You could use any combination or type of stands that goes with your design and possible decor of the event.

@JustOneMoreCake I believe it is the Wilton 3-Pillar Cake Stand (http://www.wilton.com/3-pillar-cake-stand/307-350.html) but you could probably find it for a bit cheaper on Amazon.

Thanks Freckles!  Sigh, though.  You know, I have a love/hate relationship with WIlton.  I wish they had more competition!

Check Etsy for cake stands  - I did not check first but I have searched it before for other purposes!  Or type multi level cake stand in your browser and see what comes up.

That looks like a great way to get a lot of cake without a lot of tiers (or tears!)

Good luck!

Some 15 yrs ago I got similar stand from I think it was Bakery Crafts.   There are several pix in my album showing it's use - here's one:  Hearts Delight on Cake CentralIt's called a 'single use stand' and was very inexpensive.

I'm pretty fortunate, I have 4 boys & at times I call upon them to make things for me.  I can't tell you how many times instead of always having to buy things online or retail stores my boys came thru for me with wood & good old PVC pipe.

You can get finished wood rounds at home improvements stores (& can paint them any color you want to go with a theme as well as paint the pipe or ribbon wrap it)  get a few connectors, flanges to bolt things down underneath with, different size PVC pipes (just scrubbing off the ink markings of sizes & stuff on the pipe is actually way harder than putting the whole thing together -use steel wool) just a few blocks or wood buns for feet  if using a large board.

I have had a few cakes on one very large board I dressed & the boys assembled several different height stands to it. Finished off with LED candles & flowers & voila!
