This would be my first time making a cake in which every tier is slightly offset from the lower tier creating an overhang on each level. I'm not really intimidated by it, just want to make sure it is solid for transport. Does anyone have any experience or tips on how to stack this kind of cake. Here's a pic for reference .

Anyone want to try and take a stab at this?

A quick PM to the cake artist who did this gorgeous cake should give you the help you need. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

A little lower than halfway down the page will show you the set up I am thinking of.

Thank you very much Sharon, I've seen the cake stackers system and it is on my cake wish list, however, it's much too expensive for me right now, especially since this client is trying to cut costs as much as possible. I guess I was just trying to figure out if stacking this with just dowel supports and cake boards as i usually do would be feasible. Trial and error, I will have to make a back up plan just in case it doesn't work. Thanks everyone for your input.
