Holy wow, There is some kind of support because the flowers are strategically placed so you can't see them. You may want to look though the sketches and templates area in the gallery to figure out how to do this. Wow what an undertaking! May the force be with you....lol icon_biggrin.gif

Somewhere on here some one had instructions on how this is done, I think there are styrofoam wedges between the tiers, then a support down the middle, but you may want to repost this as a question on "Topsy Turvy" or "whimsical" or Mad hatter cake help- you might get more people to post who have done these before.

Looks like Collette Peters-type construction.

Another BUMP 'cause I'd love to know how it was done also.

Each cake on it's OWN is magnificent too.

Wow, that is awe-inspiring work!! I know you can use styrofoam wedges and a center dowel for that setup, but I don't know if that's how they would do it with so many tiers- this one's just amazing. I did a very small 3-tier BC cake with tissue paper stuck in the wedges instead of flowers and it worked great, but my tiers weren't nearly this whimsical, and again not this tall. Best of luck- I'd like to see the structure for this too.

WOW! This looks amazing. I think Ron Ben Israel aslo does these sort of cakes. He calls them off kilter cakes and I'm almost sure he puts styrofoam wedges covered with flowers in between the tiers.

Can you say "styrofoam"?

At least that's what I would do to creat this design!!! icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gif

Some of those tiers look absolutely free-floating, with little visible support! icon_eek.gif Awesome for sure, but certainly nothing I'd ever try to accomplish!

Hi Im a newbie here...I love this site and you all seem so nice..anyways..this does look very Colette Peters..I took a class with her recently too..she's really nice...this looks like it has stryofoam wedges in between each tier..its not hard to do at all, I learned in her class..You cut the wedges and cover them with fondant and put in between each tier..its kind of hard to explain but its not hard to do at all. If you have one of her books it explains it really clear.
