I have a bride wanting this cake. I think it's a 6/8/10/12, but I'm not sure. Does it look like that size or does it look more like a 6/9/12/15?

Also, is it just me or do those tiers look taller than 4 inches?

Trying to give her a quote but not sure if I'm guessing the tier height and diameters correctly. Whattaya think?

It definitely looks like 6/8/10/12 to me, and I think it does look like 4 inch tiers.

I agree with Jardot, it's 6-8-10-12. THe tiers do look 4" tall, maybe a little taller but not much. If the ribbon is a 1" ribbon you can tell that 4 of them would be about the height of the tiers.

Yes, I'd guess the baker started with two full 2in cake layers, torted them (4 layers cake & 3 filling), so once it's all iced it's closer to 5in.

Looks like 6" tall tiers to me. Maybe 5". My nephew's wedding cake was this "tower" effect too (It is in my gallery photos here on CC). so yes 6/8/10/12 rounds.

Agree cakes. Look at the orchids. Compare the size of the orchids to the ribbon. I would say that ribbon is larger than 1 inch. Those orchids would have to be teeeeeeny for that ribbon to be 1 inch
