Hi, I'm "trying" to make a tardis cake (photo attached). I baked an 8" square cake and cut it in half. The problem is, the cake WILL NOT stand. As soon as I stand it up, it keeps falling. What do I do?

I made one, pics are in my photos. I stacked 8" square cakes filled with butter cream about 5" tall, used thick drinking straws in a circle around the centre, then did the same again 5" tall stacked cakes on a board, placed it on top, covered in buttercream then fondant, all the accents are fondant. royal icing to pipe lettering

I used a mixture of royal blue and navy blue on mine.

I used a little bit of black and royal blue, it takes a lot of colour!
