Lady wants a three tier cake and all white, or vanilla cakes. Wouldn't the bottom tier be too light weight to carry two more tiers on top? I think the bottom should be more dense?

The tiers shouldn't be holding the weight of the cake above... 

Your support system should hold that...

I've seen cakes 4 tiers and more made with the Cakestackers system. I was amazed at how sturdy they are and how well they held up - and looking gorgeous too.

What are some of your views on the CakeStackers? I'm not sure if I should order them!

they are probably a very secure system although I've never used it -- it is also expensive and i have found that disposable stands are the most user friendly for all involved

and there are millions and millions of white cakes stacked up with multiple more zillions of tiers -- i mean bake any kind of cake you want -- bakers do not as a rule bake a different texture cake for a bottom tier it's all the same --

wooden dowel, sps, bubble tea straws, wooden skewers work great and are not only cost effective but disposble as well
