Thank you everyone! Great ideas! Since time was of the essence this time, I opted to go with the same plastic rounds I was using between layers. I went for the one size bigger to put the 12" tier on, that way there was a border around it. It has little legs, so it is up off the material that I put between it the plywood pedestal. I put a support underneath to help support the cake...

I will definitely go through these ideas again for the wedding I have the last weekend of this month.

All I can do is hope to improve my skills with each attempt...

Thank you all so much...

Pam, one of the best stacking videos is by Sharon Zambito, of Sugar Ed Productions. Not that expensive and worth every penny. Good luck!

On my first 2 tier cake, I did this and the top layer shifted during transportation icon_sad.gif

Hmm... did you have the two center dowels going through the cake? One on each side should keep the tiers from shifting.
