What dimensions do you suggest for stacked pillow cakes?

Should there be 2-3 inches difference between the tiers?

I want to do this for a fall bridal show and need to start figuring how to pull it off. TIA!

Please someone answer!!!! Please!!! I would like to know too so I can make a stacked pillow cake for my birthday in two weeks time.
Thanks for asking this question Lenette.
P.S How do I stack a pillow cake? What do I use for boards for the ones above the bottom pillow cake.
Thanks everyone

I hve a stacked pillow cake in my photos. For it I used 4", 6", 8" & 10" cakes. Because you are carving curves into them, it looks like there's a greater size difference than the 2".

For stacking, I just stacked as I normally would - i.e. a central dowel through the lot and then a thin cake board under each and 4 dowels forming a square in the bottom three tiers.
