I would like to try a mad hatter cake this week... it is raining all week here!
I would like to do 3 teirs with each cake going from 8in or 9in gaduating down to 6 inches.

1. is this a good size
2. how many inches high will look good
3. can all three tiers be the same size

I am not going to do it crooked or slanted just graduated (spelling is not my thing!)

Thank you

Karen

Wouldn't that just be a stacked cake in that case? Mad Hatter usually refers to the sides being tapered and/or the top being crooked/slanted.

So, you want each tier to be the same size, stacked on top of each other, like this...?

9"
8"
6"
stacked on
9"
8"
6"
stacked on
9"
8"
6"

I think that would look fine. But, you have a 2" gap between the 8" and 6" so I would do 9",8",7" or 8",7",6"

You should do each cake layer 1.5" to 2" high so that your end product is 4"-6" high. Any smaller and the cake looks squished. I would err on the high side for these type cakes.
