Does anyone have a picture of a round cake that has these tier sizes?

Even if she did mean a 16", she should still be able to get a great idea of what the cake will look like! Post that badboy!

I have a 5 layer in my photos...can't remember exactly what they were. Probably 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 from the looks of it.

Thanks. I was asking because I didn't know if it would be noticeably weird to most people if the bottom tier was 4" different rather than 3" like the rest. It's for a wedding cake. What do you think?

I don't think it is going to be that big of a difference. However, they do make 15" pans.

Tellis - it will probably be very obvious to you that there is a 4" difference when the other tiers only have a 3" difference. But it probably won't be that noticeable to cake civilians.

Some people deliberately plan their tiers that way.

If it's an issue of how many slices you need, have the bride double check. I believe you are supposed to plan for 2/3rds of the guest list to attend the wedding.

If you just don't want to buy a new pan, then just go with the 16".

Good luck! Post a pic!

I always do my 4 tier cakes in those sizes. My most recent wedding cake was done in that size....the pic is in my photos...Pink and Brown.

cylstrial- thanks! That was a stressful cake, now i am glad i found out it's not so hard icon_rolleyes.gif

Tellis12- If it is a plain cake, with ribbons and not much else- the difference would be more noticeable than if it had lots of decorations i think. But it might be safest to keep them all equally spaced. That much of a difference is not enough to know it was deliberate, know what i mean? It just might look "off".
