In order to make a tall and elegant cake, the pillar supports the weight of the upper cake higher than the weight of the lower cake. These simple white pillars are pushed directly into the lower layer of cake, and then placed on the lower plate or cake plate. The movable ring rests on the top of the lower cake layer, creating the illusion that the complete pillar rests on the top of the lower layer. 4 per pack. The "spike" wide base provides stability.
