do you want the top of the 8" tier to be smaller than the footprint of the 6" tier?
if not you'll need to maybe do a 9x6x3 or a 10x7x4 or a different configuration--
or even maybe a 12x8x4--
but i mean it's stacked like any other tier cake--
are you using a separation between the cakes?
or are they stacked right on top the other?
the picture looks like it's on something like this-- a floating cake stand
Yes I do need the top of the 8" to be smaller than the bottom of the 6"
The bride sent me a picture of a paper figure she made to show me how she wanted it! My only concern was stacking the cakes on almost a point of the cake below! That doesn't give me a lot of room to dowel. (If that makes sense)
I was thinking of running a center rod down the whole cake and using flanges to hold up the middle and top tier. Im thinking if I do it that way, I will need to make the cake slightly larger with having a rod down the whole cake
would she go for the floating stand? that would be the easiest but you'd have to make sure the plates would fit your design--
and since she wants it that way you can use a board on the 8" that is almost as big as the footprint of the tier on top then place your dowel just where they won't show--
there's this too--lookie what i found--
but you can get your own clear acrylic tubes and plates at the cake store and diy it too
but that link will make one for yah too
wow!! I like that!! Maybe I will purchase something like that and save my husband the hassle of making my structure! haha thanks for sharing the link!
