I have a wedding cake request for a staggered stacked cake and really want to make sure I don't mess it up! So it's a stacked 4 tier cake with one tier going about 2 inches to the left, the next tier 2 inches to the right, the next 2 inches to the left etc. The example they gave looks like the bottoms of the tiers were iced perfectly smooth but I don't think I can do that. I was thinking of using seperator plates and covering the tiers with fondant to make it look seamless. Advice PLEASE!

My friend is doing this type of cake this weekend. I was trying to find the website the support system was ordered from. However you can go to another website and see/purchase it. It is quite costly for the system. She even called a decorator of a cake we saw on a website and this is the same support system she used. earlenes.com

The lady who makes the system is Arlene and I believe she is in South Dakota.

I found the website....www.weddingcakesupports.com/stress_free_cake_support_sy

these diagrams may help.

note how top, middle and bottom tiers are actually perfectly aligned on top of one another and its the 2nd and 4th tiers that are pushed out to the sides.
