When using the pillars and attachment plate, do I put the bottom plate under the cake then push the pillars through the cake?

Diana Najarian - from Toronto, Ontario

Yes, you will push the pillars through your cake after using the next teir above to mark the top of your cake. The feet from the next tier will leave marks showing you exactally where you place your pillars so everything is lined up. Below is the link to Wilton.com that describes how to stack with the push-in pillars.
