Hello, I would appreciate any and all help/tips/tutorials/pictorials, ANYTHING proven to work. I am making my sister's wedding cake next month, I will try to attach a picture. It is a simply decorated cake with gumpaste orchids. My question is how to stack it. I have made two and three tier cakes, I use drinking straws and or dowel wooden rods, but I don't know if the same technique would work for this cake.
The sizes of the tiers will be 6,8,10,12,14 all 4 in high.
Thank you so much in advance for your help

Well, I'm a newbie and have never made a stacked cake, but I've read on here that the SPS system is the way to go. As soon as I get the nerve up to do a stacked cake that is what I'm going to use! icon_biggrin.gif

Here's a link I found for you:

I know others will soon give you more answers also! and you can also do a "search" on this site and you should get a lot of info!

Good luck and post a pic!

You can use wooden dowels still, you just have to stack it on site. I bought a Cake Stacker that I use for any cake over 2 tiers! With it, you can travel with it fully assembled!
