I want to have it tilted, but how do I support it? Do I put dowels through it horizontally and prop it up with a dowel? How do you keep it diagonal without it tumbling down?

I covered styrofoam with fondant for my hat box cake. Much easier.

What a great idea! You got me thinking! Maybe even rice crispy treats? =)

RKTs will work, too, and I like it that they're edible. They are heavier and lumpier. Depending on how you want to angle it, the weight could be an issue.

Styro foam works good wrapped in glad press and hold , u can use piping gel or a lil BC to secure fondant!
