* The top tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the top tier.
** Always place a separator plate, or a cake board cut to fit, on the cake where you position any figurine or topper. This protects both the cake and your keepsake. For extra stability, secure your figurine to the plate with double-stick craft tape.
