I am doing a 3 tier round for this weekend (12, 10, 8), and am playing with the idea of stacking them all to one side (sort of like a staircase) rather than centered symetrically. I partly want to do this because I have a couple of fondant figurines that I'd like to put on the tiers, and there won't be much room with a traditional stack. Also, it's for a 1 year old's birthday party, and I thought a non-traditional stack might make the cake seem a little more fun and less wedding cake-like.
Has anyone done a stack like this before? Were you happy with it? Any supoort issues I should be aware of? I tried to search for pictures, but I guess I am not searching for the right terms. Any thoughts?
