So here is a picture of the cake I made for my Mom and Dad's anniversary, it turned out a little more Topsy turvy then I had planed but it was good and everyone liked it :)

and since it was my first teared cake I know I need practice....

Congratulations on your first tiered cake! It was a little nerve-racking stacking the tiers, huh? What did you use for supports?

Slurpie straws and wilton bamboo dowels got them both at Wal-mart...
after I had stacked the layers of the first tear and frosted it I released just how un even it was, so I leaveled out the other 2 tears better then I leaveled the dowels in the first cake so the top 2 looked more even.

Yes it was nerve-racking especially since it was all butter cream and I didn't want to mess up my 3-5am piping that I did :)

but I wanted to make one and this gave me a reason to so it's all good

It turned out nice! I've yet to stack a buttercream cake. Kudos to you!

You mention leveling the dowels better.  When you put dowels into a cake (be they straws, wood, plastic or whatever) you find what looks like the highest spot (actaully there should not be a high spot but often even w/good leveling tools there might be), put in one support and mesaure where it meets the cake & mark it.  Remove and cut ALL others used in that tier the same size.  What way it balances out the next tier.

That is basically what I did decided on what length they should be and cut them all the same height then I layed a cutting board on top and used a level like you would use in wood working, to make sure it was all the same height did the same with the middle, at first I fallowed the directions from Wilton's website and put them in the cake made a mark and cut there (I'm sure that is for when you have a level cake) but it seemed like it would be way off so went with my gut and cut them all the same length.

 

Here is a better picture taken with a different camera.
