Will a 6, 8, and 12 inch round stack nicely or will there be too big a difference between the 8 and 12?

depends on what kind of look you like and sometimes the design you select. Here's a couple of my 6/8/12 cakes just to give you a visual:

Depends on the design probably. If you plan to fill it in appropriately with maybe flowers or something it might be ok. If it's a real sleek cake say with only ribbon or something it might look funny. JMO

Nobody will notice but you. There is a cake in my photos (all white with pearls and scrolls) that is 6/8/12.

Hmmm...food for thought. I am trying to feed 100 people but with a cherry blossom design. I can see where the difference in layers could be visable, but I'm not sure how to accomplish the correct servings and correct visual appearance.

If you're concerned about symmetry, could you go with a 6/9/12?

Does it need to be round? I think a 6/8/10 square=100 servings and I know I've seen some neat square cherry blossom cakes.

Great suggestions. Thank you! I think I might go with the 6, 9, 12.
