Assuming the fountain stand plate is the standard 18", I'd say the bottom tier is a 16", which leads me to believe the middle tier is a 12 and the top tier an 8.

Per the wilton chart, this would serve about 180.

How many servings do you need?

M guess is 12, 9, 6. It looks like a 3 inch gap between tiers

I agree w/indy.....16, 12, 8

I'm gonna say its a 6-10-14 also based on the stand... the stand is 18" across and there is a foil board too... each one has a 1" rim. If it wasn't for that, I would have said 6-9-12 too.... so maybe they are a little taller than the usually 4" to achieve the same overall proportional look at 6-9-12.

I'm guessing 12, 9, 6. Looking at the size of the calla lily, that's my thinking.

12-9-6 is my guess too!

Gotta agree with this logic. I definitely think that the top tier is 6" but was on the fence about the difference between each layer being 3 or 4". I'm not familiar with the size of the stand but both you an Indy mentioned that the stand was 18" so......gotta go with this one.

If plate is 18", my guess would be 14-10-6

They only need 100 servings and this is the picture they gave me. I am not the best at guessing.
I think I may go with using the 14-10-6 guess. I think I will get the needed effect. Only because baking a 16 round cake sorts intimdates me at this moment. icon_redface.gif
