Just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on how to stack cakes on top of eachother for 3 tiered wedding cakes without them sinking in or caving in on eachother. How can I make them stay put nice and level......

I use Bubble Tea Straws when stacking. These are usually used in Chinese teas....I think. Google it. They can be found anywhere. The cake link I have posted is an example of a cake I did with these straws. The straws are very thick, and will not move. This sometimes occurs with wooden dowels.

I suggest that you watch Edna's tutorial on youtube "How to stack a cake, my wayicon_smile.gif" For your cake to be "level" you need to level your cake after baking before filling and icing. Cutting your supports the same length will keep your cake level after assembling.
