AThis cake is amazing. I have also wondered how to do this. I think you may have to have a built structure to hold it. But not positive. Would love to hear how as well!
AHere is a tutorial. There is another one on a blog that I can't find right now...I will keep looking. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.372905822831754.1073741838.157748257680846&type=1

AHere is the one I was thinking of http://sweeteatscakes.blogspot.com/2011/09/topsy-turvy-stand-tutorial-part-2.html
Hello! I have done a similar cake design with Styrofoam wedges. You may have to alter the design to cover the wedges. But, it is a lot easier to make that way.
Just get a real small dummy and cut it in half on a diagonal, and you may be able to use both wedges. Or get a small Styrofoam disk at a craft store, cut it in half, glue the 2 pieces together and sand them down to the size disc you need. Cover the wedges in a coordinating color fondant and make sure you drive a shortened central dowel in each section to the next section as you build it.
I learned how in an awesome class from Ron Ben Israel for topsy turvy cakes. It is a cute cake and you will do fine! Good luck!
AThank you sassyzan! I could not find a link anywhere! The one you gave was very helpful! Cindym...I am having a hard time picturing what you mean.....do you still build a support structure and use Styrofoam instead if real cake for the tilted tier? I'm just trying to decide which method to go with. Thanks again
