Hello fellow cake decorators, 

My question is the following:

How do you build a structure for this cake? 

Do you know of a tutorial where I could obtain more information? 

I was recently asked how much I would charge for a replica of this cake, but I have not ideas as to how to stack a cake like this. Any input is greatly appreciate it. Help With Cake Structure/support

At 1st I thought this would be rather straightforward but now I'm not so sure.  1st thought was that each cake tier would be balance by the next tier up w/the small round 'separators' being styrofoam.   2nd thought:  A long dowel rod holding it all together is placed in the bottom tier w/each tier of cake and styro threaded down from the top.   That;s quite a busy design (for my tastes)  but it comes across nicely.    As for pricing no less than $4 per serving and probably much more :)
