Cake stacking Query

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am planning a competition cake which involves a person shape from the waist up.  I intend to stack 5 cakes 14 in by 9 in squarely on top of each other and then shape only the top tier as a head shape.  I am not allowed to use internal supports.  I know there;s a risk of it falling over but I intend to be extremely careful there but what about it sinking?  I have used a madiera cake and over baked to make it more solid (no one is going to eat it).  Anyone got any advise?

9 x14 by how tall is each of the five cakes?

 

if there's no support what does the top tier consist of?

 

how many of the 5 cakes make up the 'top tier'?

 

if there's no supports then it's all one tier? isn't it?

If this has to be real cake, then I would NOT enter such a contest. Making a stable head on a neck out of cake is impossible without internal support.
