Hi I was asked to make a cake like this. I am curious as to what kind of supports are being used and I also had questions for the size. It would need to feed approximately 50 what do you suggest? Thnx

Well, It's not a stand. But the supports appear to be simply push in pillars. Tall, push in pillars. With these, you need no other supports and are very sturdy because the pillars are not sitting on top of the bottom tier, but push all the way through to the base. This method uses the actual cake itself to stabilize the pillars.
