The base of any celebration cake is what you put it on. We have a range of cake drums (the thicker bases) and cake cards (the thinner bases) in all sorts of sizes to help you make sure that you have the right one. The size of our drums and cards range from 8 inches right up to 16 inches. The largest of these are likely to be used only as the bottom tier of a wedding cake, but the choice of size depends upon your needs. Remember that a 12 inch cake drum will normally be used to hold a 10 inch cake, or an 11 inch one at a push. If you plan to ice the cake, then we recommend that you use a base at least two inches more in diameter than the cake you plan to make. If you are making a tiered cake than the card bases rather than the drums can be ideal for the upper tiers, as they will be much less obvious, and it is the cake that you want people to see!
Most cakes are supported on silver bases as this seems to suit the vast majority of requirements, and because the base is something that you want to keep as much out of view as possible, but on some occasions, like a golden wedding anniversary, you may want to switch to a gold cake drum to stay in keeping with the event.
