I've been searching and searching and can't find anything...

Does anyone know of a good tutorial or book that includes directions I can buy that describes how to do tilted cake layers? Not the topsy turvy or mad hatter where the cake is slanted - but where the whole layer is tilted. It's the way that leaves the gap between the layers that are filled in with flowers or something.

I know I've seen this somewhere but for the life of me can't remember off the top of my head. I know that you put styrofoam wedges inbetween the tiers and I even remember the pic of the cake but can't remember where....
I was just off to bed but I'll try and take a quick look for you to see if I can find it. If not I'll for sure check for you tomorrow night.

Here's a link that might help. It's not the one I was thinking of but I think it will definitely help you (Doug's diagram is in one of the links).
