If your cake is going to be 4 layers you're going to need more supports than just for the cooler and bottles. You need supports (boards & dowels/straws) for every 4 vertical inches. I use supports for 3 1/2 or more myself.

If your layers are 2" or more you'll need supports between the second and third layer. How large is the cooler? Probably need supports between the cooler/beer bottles and top layer as well?
