Hello my fellow CC'ers. I would love a little insight please on how to go about stacking this cake. The balls will be Styrofoam.

HOLY COW!!!! GREAT JOB!!! (Yes, I am screaming!) So, how did you do it, because it is wonderful!
Thanks everyone, well in a nutshell, I screwed a long pole, a curtain rail actually which I double wrapped with cling film to a large round wooden board. covered the board with fondant then arranged the base cakes about six 9' cakes around the pole with a gap in the center where I put two 6' styrofoam rounds with holes in the centers through which I passed the pole. Next came the smaller 7'' rounds on top of the 9'' dowelled cakes. Next came the fondant covered and decorated styrofoam ball which I had also drilled holes into and slightly flattened the top and bottom for balance. I carved out a hole in the centers of all the cakes,dowelled them minus the topmost tier and passed the pole through them till I got to the top,then I cut off the excess pole, put the top decoration, sugar flowers,beads and voila! I was done. All side stencilling was done prior to setting up the cake. HTH.
