Hope you guys can help!

I am looking for a deep dummy cake - at least 6 inches - for a modern wedding cake design. The wedding party is quite small, but the bride would still like a dramatic cake. The designs that are inspiring her are all very simple, but generally, a deep stacked circular style. As I mentioned, at LEAST 6 inches. I haven't stacked dummy cakes before - with in the one tier I mean - is this something that I can do.

Hope this makes sense icon_smile.gif

Of course one can stack like sized dummies until it is the height one wants. NO doweling is needed - just set each styro round on top of the other w/a dab of icing to hold them together.

I'm so sorry, but I just can't figure out what you mean by stacking "with in the one tier"??????

You can buy 6" tall dummies of any shape. You can stack them on top of each other or you can mix them in with real cakes.

Does any of that answer your question?
