Wilton Roman Column cake stand (question)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello All!

I have a question about the Wilton Roman Columns cake stand. I have a wedding cake order and I want to place a 4 tiered wedding cake on this. Will the stand withstand the weight or does anyone know what weight the stand will hold?

I have seen a couple of pictures of this but do not want to exceed weight limits for fear of collapse.

Thanks in advance!

It will hold just fine. It's a balance and distribution of the weight that works.

Some people put the stand together and think it's feels/looks wobbly. Well, without a cake on it, it IS wobbly. But the weight of the cake helps hold everything in place.

When I started doing cakes, back in the late 70's, fountains and stairs cakes were pretty much the only cakes being made, so I used this stand every single weekend. I have more years experience working with this stand than most on here (with the possible exception of BCJean!).

You'll be fine. Just be sure you have a small ladder or stool handy to put that top tier on the top!

Sorry it took so long o post a reply. I've been out of town. Thank you so much for your help. It was extremely helpful. This is the first cake I have done in this design and I had seen it done but knowing you have a history with this style really takes the questions out of my mind. icon_smile.gif

Thanks again!

One word of caution..... I once had to put a 4 tiered stacked cake on top of that set up and **WOW!!!!!* was that thing heavy and hard to get put together! I had built the cake on the top separator plate.... trying to get the 'feet' into the pillars w/that much weight was awful!
Make you cake on a board - not the plate and add it after the plate is in place.
