Hi All!

I need help in figuring out the support for a Leaning Tower of Pisa Cake.

By my calculations, and depending on how tall each tier will be, I'm looking at 16" to 22" of cake alone. (the top "floor" is a cake dummy). The bottom portion will be 4"high of 8"cake and the rest of the floors will be either 2"X6" rounds or 3"X6" rounds.

How should I go about building the cake base and center support? Is PVC food safe? I see a lot of people use it.

Each floor will have one or two cake boards separating it from the next, so I will have individual support on each floor. While I naturally don't want it to topple over, I can't have a cake with just supports throughout icon_wink.gif

Any advice/suggestions are appreciated!
