I need at least 200 servings... So I suggested a 6, 10 and 14 .. because they wanted a 11 x 15 (41 servings) also..

can I offset these sizes with no problem?

Here is the cake that I have to try to get the look of... its of Cakery's cake icon_smile.gif (thanks girl)

If you measure the square pan diagonally (corner to corner) this will tell you how big of a square it can sit on offset. If you don't do a full 90 degree offset you can get away with the squares closer in size.

Your 6" should be about 9" diagonal and the 10" should be about 15" diagonal. You could do this cake just don't offset the second tier quite center.

easy NO MATH (YEA!!!!) method.

stack your cake pans on each other playing around w/ sizes and amount of twist until "it looks right".

and there you have it.
