Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I just saw your beautiful cake, You did a fantastic job! I was wondering what you came up with, if you wouldn't mind sharing? Did you use some sort of metal/plastic structure? I'm super curious to see what it looks like inside lol!

Thanks everyone, well in a nutshell, I screwed a long pole, a curtain rail actually which I double wrapped with cling film to a large round wooden  board. covered the board with fondant then arranged the base cakes about six 9' cakes around the pole with a gap in the center where I put two 6' styrofoam rounds with holes in the centers through which I passed the pole. Next came the smaller  7'' rounds on top of the 9'' dowelled cakes. Next came the fondant covered and decorated styrofoam ball which I had also drilled holes into and slightly flattened the top and bottom for balance.  I carved out a hole in the centers of all the cakes,dowelled them minus the topmost tier and passed the pole through them till I got to the top,then I cut off the excess pole, put the top decoration, sugar flowers,beads and voila! I was done. All side stencilling was done prior to setting up the cake. HTH.
