A client contacted me with the picture of this cake. See link below.
She wants other colors but the same look. How is this ca supported. What did she use between the tiers? Could it be dummies? Please give me some advise.

thank you

Yup, it's probably supported by styro dummies and dowels of course

Yes, styro's. I made one similar. Dowel the cake as usual, then I put a cardboard on top of the dowels and THEN set the styrofoam support on top of the cardboard. The reason is that I didn't want the wooden dowels to push right thru the styrofoam. I'm sure it would have been fine, it was just my added security to make me feel better!

The styro's were wrapped in fondant. Only had to do the sides because the next tier up would cover the top of the styro.

That's a bunch of GP roses. I hope you charge her accordingly!
