Tier Separator Plates & Columns are used as a skeletal structure to support the balance of a stacked wedding cake.
To use (example 2 tier cake):
Take the cake plate and lay it gently feet down on top of the center of the bottom tier, marking the column placement.
Insert the appropriate height columns into the marked spots.
Attach the feet of the cake plate onto the placed columns, and make level.
Then place the top tier onto the cake plate.
