A question about how to stack an 8" high cake.

Do you stack the first 4" and then put a normal layer of icing on top then add your supports and board then continue stacking the next 4", then ice the whole thing like one cake?

The whole cake will be covered in fondant, so I am assuming they will be cutting down to the first board and serving the whole top 4" layer first. Then cutting the bottom 4" inches. It won't be able to be unassembled before cutting.

I am going to try to decorate it like the Wedding Shower package cake in Sugarshack's Boxes and bows DVD (brown with the blue lid).

Any tips or suggestions would really be appreciated. Thanks

That's how I would do it. Make sure your board is small enough that it doesn't make a ridge when you smooth the fondant on and tell them that there's a board in there and that they'll need to cut down to the board, then cut along the fondant there sideways before lifting slices off.
