Using pillars to separate cake tiers is a very traditional way of displaying a tiered wedding cake. Even though stacked cakes have become increasingly popular over recent years, there will always be a special place for the more traditional look. Cake pillars not only give height to a cake, but also add a touch of elegance. The space created by the pillars can be left clear showing only the cake decoration, or it can be filled with sugar flowers or fresh flowers. Both are equally as stunning!
All tiered cakes covered in sugarpaste (fondant / roll out icing) must be supported with wooden or plastic dowels. If you are unsure how to dowel a cake then please download our free project: Dowelling a cake with pillars.
