Cake Stand + questions help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For a wedding cake the base cake is 16 inch. Would I use a 19 or 22 inch cake stand. First wedding cake a little nervous. The cake is 4 tiers 16, 14, 10 and 6. White buttercream with the wilton tailored tier cake display set. I want to write inspiration words on the cake using tappits. Do you think the words would show if I use white fondant. I am using white fondant roses with the edges dust with pink petal dust.

I would go with the larger size if you can afford it as it will give you more room for the flowers. I love the look of white piping on white fondant or bc. I think it's very elegant. I think however that since you are doing words, you will lose them a bit with the white on white. How about dusting the edges of the letters with the pink petal dust as well? It will help them stand out a little and tie them in with the roses.

You could also pearl dust your letters and they will stand out more but still be tone on tone.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Thank you! I will get the larger stand. I like the idea of dust lettering pink. My handwriting is terrible. Thanks,

I'd use a 20" base for a 16" cake.

It also depends on what type of stand... if it's a pedestal stand, I wouldn't consider putting a cake that large on top of it, and, if it's a stand made specifically for cake, I'd read the weight limit because if it's footed the feet may collapse if it's overloaded.
