I was just looking at another cake and the sizing was different...

like it was an 18, 14, 10,6.

Is it better to have 4" difference between vs a 2" difference??

I think it looks fine however if you need the extra spacing for flowers or embellishments etc..then more than 2 inches between tiers is better.

I think it looks better with a 4 inch difference but to each their own. You have very little variance with a inch difference. You can stack your pans and see what you think too.

I think it depends. A combination of different heights will also play well.

My brown and white cake was 14, 12, 10, 8 and 6.

Like Ryaln said, it really depends on the design/ style. I like 2" and up to 4", but it all depends on the look I'm trying to achieve.

So pretty. It also gives it the look of height.
