I did one for my neices graduation but I used styrofoam cut on an angle as the seperator of each layer. Not sure if this would work on a wedding cake - you could use flowers to cover the styrofoam instead of the ribbon like I used. It make it easy to put the cake together though. I researched the other techniques where you cut out cake but that was too hard for me. Check out the picture of the tipcake in my pixs (towards the middle right of the page - neon colors). Hope it helps a little anyway.... thumbs_up.gif

im getting ready to do this as well. the "cutting" method looks like a PITA.. I am going to go with cuting one layer of each tier at a 45 degree angle then spinning it 180 degrees....

I tried it once and it worked... its just been a while. Maybe I will take photos and see what i can come up with. When is your cake? Mine is late march...

I am going through the same thing. The decorators are talking me through the whimsy cake as well.
Go to the top of the forum, click on search, type in whimsy cake, and look for the discussion:
"Topsy turvy problem- help with issues for upcoming wedding"

You will find lots of info and our discussion there
