I have to make a 5 tier topsy turvy wedding cake for a friend. She wants the cake to be fake (dummies) except for the bottom tier which she wants to be real cake. If I assemble the cake in this way, wont the second tier be shorter than the rest because I will have to insert it into the bottom tier? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to assemble a cake like this? I appreciate any help. Thank you so much!
