AnnieCahill is correct. Straight is the key - I regularly do up to 4 tier cakes (even topsy turvy) with just regular drinking straws as supports. I do like to double (just glue them) my cardboards under each tier and I use at least three (more for larger cakes) wrapped together for the drum under the whole thing.
