I'm doing a friends cake & have done teirs using SPS but she's asked for a "spacer". I was planning on this construction-does it sound correct & stable?

 

14" on base-insert 11" SPS

11" cake on cake board-insert 6" SPS

6"styro spacer

8" cake on foamcore-doweled thru the styro to the SPS

6" SPS

6" cake

Appreciate your thoughts!

Sounds good.  I assume it will be transported fully assembled (hence the center dowel through the 8" tier and 6" spacer), otherwise the center dowel isn't mandatory after delivery.

I appreciate the affirmation! I was planning on transporting in 2 sections-the bottom thru the spacer, and then top 2 teirs. Will this balance okay without the center dowel if I finish assembly at the site?!

It will... it's only going to overhang 1" all the way around, but use the dowel or a skewer if you'd feel better about it.  Either way, I'd at least use a smear of BC or chocolate there.
