Ty ladies :) Sorry, would of responded sooner but the last 2 days have been really busy. If I could do more support I would. I bet the top of my tower weighed a good 3lbs or more and it had a pretty small metal rod supporting it. It was just a piece of scrap metal we found laying around the shop when we made the stand. We didn’t want to invest a lot into this stand until we knew it would work. I wonder if a rod going through the pipe would work, I didn’t try that and it would make me nervous, I’m not exactly sure how it would support. My metal rod went under the cake plate horizontal through holes we drilled in the PVC pipe to support the base of the plate. Even then it moved a little until I got all the RKT down on top and bottom. I need to make another pipe and find a really sturdy metal rod before I attempt cake like that. Where I live we work with what we can find though.The reason why my tower isn’t completely round is cause my board and that rod wouldn’t work the way I needed it to. I hope that helps some, if you got any more questions I will try and help! Good luck cherry cant wait to see your cake!
