What are you most proud of? Calculating the angle and being able to achieve the height without it turning into a disaster.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Spend the time on the maths to get the positioning of the cakes correct.

You're saying that all FOUR of the layers are actually made of cake - and they stay perched at that precarious angle without any support structure in them? That's impossible!

No, I am not saying that! if you read my earlier comments, I have said several times that the very top tier is a dummy, the other 3 tiers are cake. and yes, it is possible with 2 people to steady the cake and very carefully put it together and of course you cannot move it once it is together it has to stay in that spot or yes it would fall apart. Anything is possible if you just have patience :)
