Each tier(cake) is on it's own cake board,period. Then you can "stack" with supports for each tier. There are different methods for support of the tier on top of another- dowels, staws, SPS. Dowels and straws are prob the cheapest, but need to be done correctly for structure and cakes MUST be level. I prefer SPS works perfect even when i'm not, but I do sometimes use dowels on free/practice cakes.
