I found that the candles that only take 1 battery burn out fast. Double battery candles are better. I have 4 different types of battery candles and the brightness and flicker is the same. Wish they would make all of them brighter like a real candle. Never force the base on. It's cheap plastic.
I love my stand and have used it separately and together. my issue is there is no place to purchase replacement parts. Even on the Wilton website when you type in replacement parts for the Towering Tier cake stand it prompts you to buy a new one. I would recommend this product with warning about replacing a broken or missing part.
I have read so many of the bad reviews about this product.. I've had mine for about two years and have gotten quite a few maybe 5 uses out of it already. But I have been only using it for cupcakes.. Haven't tried Tiering cakes yet... It works very well, it did not break on me. I have been able to set it completely up once. The only thing is that the very top piece that holds it together is missing... Maybe if Wilton had a way to only replace the missing and/or broken pieces it would be great.. Now I have yet to find any other tall cake stand like this one so I'm forced to buy a new one.. Though it's not the prettiest it still gets the job done
