That's not unusual that a cake might look straight from one side but crooked from another. Make sure that you level your cakes before icing them, and that the supports you're using are completely level and equal height.

If you're using hidden pillars and they're all the same length, the cake should look level even if it's slightly off. If it's really off and one side is a lot higher then it will look crooked, but the hidden pillars cut level and used with plastic plates should level the tiers out once it's all stacked.
