AHello, I've been asked to make a 4 tier stacked wedding cake. The bride has asked for plain sponge, carrot, chocolate and lemon in that order starting from the top. Would it be possible to have a carrot cake as the second tier or would it be too heavy for the chocolate & lemon sponges to support? Would it be best to have it as the base? Thank you :)

Thank you icon_smile.gif

No you may have them in any order the client wishes because the tier below is not holding up the tiers above, your support system is doing that x
