Due to their weight, cakes over a certain number of tiers need additional support, such as cake boards and stands. Although I do not plan to use thick pieces of cake for the model, as I am making it to scale, I will need to fashion a similar support system for my model to compensate for the large amount negative space. I plan to use a layer of cardboard under the upper platform to give additional support.
