I have been asked to create a 4 tier buttercream wedding cake for a friend's daughter wedding. She wants it like the picture here with the tiers being turned. I have done this with 2 tiers, but not with 4. I also have never done a 4 tier cake. The highest I have done is 3 so a little apprehensive with this one. I plan to use a rod all the way through the cake from top to bottom and also dowel each layer. Is there a better method or any tips or tricks on this sort of cake? Planning to use a doctored cake recipe so it can withstand the weight better. Will be doing flowers instead of leaves too.
