I remember seeing a post on both of there. the black and white uses wedges of styrofoam, the other is something like it. I would pm the people who made these and ask them.

Good Luck.

You will definitely want to use the styrofoam method. I'll attach the diagram of a styro wedge cake I did, but it was round. It's the cake with the skeleton top in my pics, so WAAAY diff from yours. BUT this may help with the construction. I angled my tiers, and clearly you won't do that!
Good luck!

Earlier today, I was admiring the cake that you posted in the bottom photo. I just looked up the creator's post, prior to her making that cake, and it tells how to stack and internally post that cake.
