I am doing my first wedding cake and have read a lot of comments on here about how to's on making it but I haven't been able to find the answer to my question.
I bought a 14" white plastic separator plate from my baker's supply store. It is sturdy and has four 1/2" feet that it sits on. My question is: Can I just put my 12" bottom tier directly on that surface or do I have to have a cardboard cake circle under the cake and then stick it to the plastic stand with icing? What are the pro's and con's about both? Will it not be stable?
There is a 10" layer (set on dowels) on top of that, then a wilton decorative separator. Then I will add a 6" and an 8" on top of that when we get there. Oh also, I am using BC.
