If you put the correct support system inside it you shouldn't have any problems. What were you planning on doing?

It's actually a pill bottle covered in bc. 7" I will be glueing a dowel onto a mdf board and then threading the cakes! Also is it best to "thread" the cakes while they are cold or room temperature?
I will be using bible tea straw also!

The most important this is that you treat it like a 2 tier cake structurally. At the middle point there needs to be a board and dowels underneath and then you can ice it up as one.
