ok...the client needs to decide between a 6, 8, 10 round tiered cake or a 4, 6, 8 round tiered cake...i have done a 6, 8, 10 but not the other...i really need to find cake examples to show/email her the size difference and comparison to other objects...if any of you can find any pictures on here or anywhere that shows a true size as can be 4, 6, 8 and a 6, 8, 10...please let me know! Thanks so much!

Can you meet with her and simply stack the empty pans? That's what I do with clients.

Why not just cut out a four inch circle and put it on top of your other pans to give her a visual idea (if it's just for seeing the diameter). If she needs a three dimensional view, then you can cut a strip of paper to represent the pan (sort of like making a hat out of paper) and tape it together.

LOL, exactly!!

It's hard to get perspective from a photograph, even if a ruler is in the picture. *Shrug*

find an tape measure or measure 4 inches of string and then find a jar in your pantry that measures 4 inches

check the large mayo bottle, that can of powdered nequick, iced tea box, quaker oatmeal box (you get the idea) or any other round cans.

You can alter the can with adhesive gift wrap and if its cardboard cut it to desired height.

If you don't want to take the can or any item that is 4 inches you can cut out 4 inches of sheet cake by marking a circle with your 4 inch jar or other item you find and cutting around it

Hope it works out

An extra large can of tuna is about 4" if that helps. I save the cans and bake in them all the time.

Remove lable and wash, good to go.

I have this pic that is a 4-6-8:

and a 6-8-10 here:

But if you can get her in person and show her the pans stacked that might be the best bet for a real "visual". I know I've planned out like a 6-8 and once its made its like - dang that's small! LOL But the 4-6-8 I just did was even a nice size due to being 3 tiers.

The tuna cans are perfect also for the sample cakes!
