Can I torte and fill the bottom layer of a 4 tier stacked wedding cake?
The bottom layer is a square 14" x 2" deep layer.
I'm afraid it will be unstable.
Thanks for any advice given.

Why not? It's not the cake supporting the weight of the upper tiers, it's your support system. If your bottom tier shows signs of instability, then you need to figure out what is going wrong with your support system.

Sure You can. I do it all the time.

All stacked cakes need support. You might want to read up on SPS. For a new caker it is fool proof and you will not need to worry about our filling moving or sliding.

Good luck

Of course. Every cake I make is torted and fillled.

Wait a sec... the bottom tier is only 2 inches tall? That sounds like an interesting design. What are the dimensions of the other tiers?
