Most tiered cakes are made up of two 2” layers with filling between    A good combination is an 8” or 9” round topped with a 6” tier   Supportas are needed in the larger bottom tier & the 6” needs to be on a 6” cake board   Supports can be plastic drink straws   Carefully push one straight into the cake & mark/cut when it is even with the top of the cake remove & cut 2 more exactly the same size then place them in the cake forming a triangle within a 6” circle where the top cake will sit   They will hold up the top cake -keep it from sinking into bottom tier    You really need to check out You Tube on how to stack cake tiers but what I just told you is a good start   To one reason you’re getting different information is because what works for one might not work for another    I bet most have similar info w/ minor differences
