I am doing a wedding cake square 4-tier ... 6",8",10",12". What would you use for the base? Would a covered cake drum hold it or should I make my own out of like ply wood and cover it or something like that? Any help would be great!

It will be quite heavy, but a 14-16" drum would be fine.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is a cake drum?

Here is a link to some pictures. They are sturdy cake circles to use for the base of cakes, about 1/2" thick. They are usually gold or silver foil covered.
