I need advice badly. I have never stacked cakes before and for the most part I understand how it works except if you are stacking an odd shaped cake on top. I'm creating a superhero cake and want the top tier to be the shape of the Superman logo. I was going to use wooden dowels and a cake board in between the two layers but how do you find/make a cake board to fit that shape? I know there is cardboard cake boards but would that be safe in between the layers?

You carve it from a cardboard cake board.

Yes, that's what they're made for.
(You can use a piece of waxed paper on the bottom of the board to help prevent it from sticking to the icing.)
