The easiest and safest of all construction methods, because cakes are positioned on plates which fit right into the stand. Each cake stand requires specific cake sizes to fit its design. Many stands come with the plates sized to fit; cake tiers should be 2 in. less in diameter than the plates.
Decorate individual cake tiers on separator plates, which fit the stand.
Position cakes in stand, placing the feet of the separator plate securely inside the bars of cake stand, so that the plate surface rests on the bars.
Display the assembled cake on a secure table.
