Does any one know where I can find a tutorial on how to make a cake similar to this... Or can anyone help me with instructions on how to get the cakes to do this:

These are three different designs that have used the technique

Thanks Ambar2 the only thing it shows how to tilt the bottom layer but how will you do that to make a 2 Tier or 3 Tier or more?

Don't see how you can use nails with more than one tier because their not food safe & if the go into the cake I wouldn't feel comfortable serving a cake like that

Colette Peters has the foam wedge technique in her book Cakes to Dream On that you can find at your local library or book store. I'm sure there is a You Tube tutorial on the wedges - try searching there.

This cake that I made used Courtney Clark's technique. (cake nouveau dot com) They are in the process of selling the structures.

It has a center rod support.
