I am wanting to have a go at a cake like this one.....my question is what is used in between the layers of cake and also how would the cake be stacked and held in place so it doesn't slide off. I hope my question makes sense i have baffled myself now lol icon_confused.gif

This looks like the topsy-turvys that Collette Peters makes. There are several forums, one which has a diagram by Doug that is very helpful. Basically, the wedges beneath each cake are styrofoam, and a long dowell is inserted through all of the cakes to keep them in place.

Styrofoam wedges separate the cakes. I've never done one, but I would guess you dowel/SPS like a normal stacked cake. You can see the bottoms of the real cakes are somewhat level so when doweled/SPSed, I think they would be safe from sliding.

This may be a stupid answer, but why not write to the person that MADE the cake?

This is made with styrofoam wedges in the same construction as the skeleton cake in my pics. I used Colette's construction/support method for the most part. It is NOT as hard as you think! Just a little scary. I cut my dummies, but you can buy them precut SOMEWHERE on the net, but I can't remember where I saw them. Write me if you want to discussicon_smile.gif

Styrofoam wedges covered in fondant. Dowels through entire thing.
