This is the cake that someone asked me to replicate.

How would you do the stacking of the cakes? They sit crooked and hang over the edge a bit so I'm not sure what to put on the bottom of those cakes? Cardboard? Plates? Something else? What would work best and blend in the best (be able to be covered partially by fondant)

The bride wanted 10" cakes... do you think 3 of them will be enough for each tier? or is that going to look fatter more so than skinny & tall like this cake looks?

The leaves look like they're either cut out with a Cricut or markers were used to paint the black on them. Would you make separate pieces for the grass looking plant on top and then just connect them at the edges to get that look or make a bend in each leaf to make them whole and put them on the cake like that?

Those cakes look about as tall as they are wide, maybe 6" by 6"

they do... can you cut through masonite boards? I'd like to have a center dowel but not sure what to use to separate the cakes...

I think you need a drill to get through masonite
