If you are able to build the cake stands then it should be pretty simple... depending on the size of the cake of course... but you (or someone you may know that is good at building things) could make the stands with a tilt that the cakes (drums) could rest on and you can cover the stand in fondant to give it a specific look....
The drum part shouldn't be too difficult depending on the style of course. But basic round cakes of different sizes and heights...
thats one idea... icon_smile.gif

It really depends on the size and weight of each cake. You may need to build custom stands with appropriate sized wooden dowels and a wood base (for the cake board to sit on)
You may be able to fasten an appropriate dowel to a thick cake board.
All in all, it really depends on the size and weight though. Gotta use your judement...

We are making a trip to Home Depot today for the exact same thing. What did you end up doing?
