Yes the two top ones are the angle ones and the bottom is straight. Yo can do them all angle but you will need a stronger support sistem like a central wooden dowel that will go all the way trough the tiers.
Now the bottom tier has a acrilic support piece that is shoun in one reply in this topic. But you can use plastic big dowels cut to size for the bottom straight and for the middle angle. For the middle tier is very important to measure the dowels to get the perfect angle. Both tiers need 4 dowels and all of the cakes have a cardboard base.
If you are afraid of them sliding you can sut a piece of this rug non slip material, is a platic mesh, new of course, and this will prevent the sliding. Also the central dowel if you are not using an acrilic base might be use.
I never transport my cakes assemble, I do it on site. So I will be sure no transport accidents will occur.
Please do not use the kaboob sticks for support they do nothing. And you could have a cake disaster.
Let me know if there is something else I could help.
