Possibly what we call a "Topsy Turvy?" Sometimes called a "Mad Hatter?"
Just guessing since the pic did not load...

Here is a great tutorial found in the Articles/How To section of this site:

Hope that helps if it is what you are searching for.

thanks very much for the link. but i'm still abit confused! how does each cake stick to the styrofoam wedges that were shown in sharons blog .do you need dowels if the bottom cake is real but the rest are dummy cakes?

It seems like she used melted chocolate to adhere the cake to the wedges and also to secure the wedges to the cake...I hope that makes sense, LOL

Also, wooden dowels going through...

if thats the case can you use royal icing instead of chocolate as i can imagine it to be stronger

There is a Caddy Wampus (sp?) on that Brownen Weber sells. IT's under the cake study tab.

you can carve the styro with a knife. You will need a tall dowel for the middle to stack each cake on with support in each also.
