ok, I have the hanging system, I have the total understanding of the support system, I just don't know how to transport it? I am guessing that it needs to be assembled on site? I watched the video of the cake stackers system, however,how do you grasp and tighten the screws when there is cake in the way?

I am making a display for a show next weekend and I can fake it thru a dummy cake, but I don't want to display something that I can't create.

i'm not exactly familiar with this stand but i am going to venture a guess since there's been no answer for you-- it will rest on it's bottom tier -- yes? attach a foam core board larger than the largest tier to the bottom board -- might as well leave it square so it will fit into the box perfectly -- use a corrugated cardboard box and in fact you could use two square foamcore boards -- one at the top and one at the bottom to insure stability in transport --


then remove the foam cores for display--


but if you are assembling on site then just transport one by one

so there has to be some kind of screw on the bottom to hold everything together? could you just insert the foamboard in there because all you have to do is keep it steady as you deliver right? so if the foamcore is the same size as the box-- would that work?
