5-Tiered Cake

Five tiered cake – Wedding Cake
This five tiered cake consisted of 16”, 14”, 12” 10” and 8” diameter cake. Set-up was done at site for final finishing touches. All the cake was placed on a “Tall Tier Cake Stand” I bought from Wilton .
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the cake was not to be placed near the “pelamin”, the stage where the bride and groom sits. Thus, the tiered cake has to be carried to the stage during the cake cutting ceremony. So the fully assembled cake have to be stashed somewhere.

I went to check the cake on the verge of the cutting ceremony. I realized the tiered cake tilted a little bit. The boys (who help in the ceremony) help to check and we found out one of the table’s leg rubber had worn off. Heartache!!! Heartache!!!....anyway no time to rectify the problem…….The weight of the cake worsens the situation.
When we carried the tiered cake to the stage, one of the boy tried to put a piece of Styrofoam on the worn off table’s leg to stabilized the table but the Styrofoam was crushed when we placed the tiered cake on the table, the table (I think) cannot take the weight of the cake………Arghhhhhhh!!!!!.
I am very worried the cake will topple….. The degree of the “tilting” seems to increase when it was on stage….look like the “Leaning Tower of Pisa”.
When the bride and groom ready to cut the cake, I requested three boys to go up on stage…..to grab the tiers, just in case it topples…….(this was caught in the wedding video)……..
Thank God!!! The cake does not topple……
By the way, the 2 figurines are specially ordered to match the groom and the bride's face =)
Lesson Learned:
1. Do not rely on the table provided; I have to have my own table.
2. If possible, the fully assembled cake must not be moved frequently, especially for tiered cake more than four.
