Three tier, 8 on bottom, 6 in middle, and ____ on top? A 4"?

If your bottom is 8, I use 4 bubble tea straws, if the middle layer is a 6" supporting a 4", I would use 3 arranged in a pyramid shape.

Thanks!

Yes..8 + 6 + 4
so there will be on 8" for 4 ( for supporting 6" )+ on 6" for 3 (for supporting 4") + on 4" for 1 to support from top to bottom ????

In the 8" cake I would insert 4, in the 6" I would insert 3, and 1 long dowel thru the middle.
