I know this has probably been asked a million times, I have a customer that wants this cake

I need some guidance on supports and the base, the picture has it on that tiny cake board and I can not see this cake being steady like that. Thanks!

I know that you can make that cake with the cake stackers system.

It looks like they may have used the SPS sysytem. that would give you plenty of support, since the pillars lock into the base below.

I made a copy of that cake for a bride a while back (I think it's in my pictures) and I actually used a stand that had a small hole in the base that allowed me to screw in a support pole and then I used small clamps to hold each tier. My brother made it and he now sells them on Etsy (see my signature for URL). IT worked really well.
