I think they're beautiful, I'm just glad I don't have to cut them..it would look like a cake massacre!!

I was thinking of doing two cakes stacked, but with a foam core board between them. I would ice them to look like one tier. This way I could cut the top cake first. I hope this makes since.

yes, it's called an extended tier. you wouldn't need foam core in between if you use sps. You just use the same size sps plate and pillars.so it would be 12" foam dummy, 10"cardboard cake board, 10"cake, 10"sps, 10"cardboard, 10" cake, 8"sps, 8"cardboard, 8"cake, 6' sps, 6"cardboard, 6"cake.

 

If it's going to be this big and have an extended tier --  I strongly STRONGLY recommend sps, it'll save you a lot of worrying!!
