Groom's Topsy Turvy Cake

First time doing a topsy-turvy...had to travel 2 1/2 hours with it! Groom wanted color scheme of black, white, silver to match reception. Had a few "bumps" along the way that I had to fix....have better ideas what to do next time I need to make one.

Thanks! I used the instructions here on CC as a guideline, except I used the same sizes of layers on top of one another (example: all 10" tiers on top of each other, etc.) Then carved sides and buttercream frosted, smoothed and added fondant accents. The things I would do different: Put a cake circle in middle of each tier for added support. I would transport entire cake already constructed with 2 dowel rods driven down into middle of entire cake into foam base for stability.

What did you use for the silver color. It such a solid silver color. I have not been able to get a solid silver, just a gritty mess.
