If I am doing a cake over a fountain and it is a 14-10-6 would a 16 inch plate with 4 roman pillars be ok? Or would you have to do a 18 inch plate with 6 roman pillars?? The cake board will be 16 inches so I think it would look better on a 16 inch but I don't want it to not be sturdy enough with just 4 pillars....

it could be done either way--but you gotta use your head too--

 

if it was fondanted and filled with cream cheese icing or nice thick heavy fruit filling  the weight would be substantial so i'd double triple check it as i built it--the 4 pillars should be fine but be careful

 

then on the other hand i think a two inch border on the 18" plate is substantial--needs some decorating finesse to pull that off--

 

good luck
