Don't know if it will even post the link.

I emailed the baker and have not heard back yet. I am wanting to do something similar in size, but not necessarily design. Any ideas or guesses?

Looks like a 10,8 and 6 to me. The 8 looks a little shorter than the 10.

I say a taller 6" an 8" 2cake and a 12" cause if you look there is like a 2inch gap for the top two and a 4 inch gap for the bottom two.

I agree, and the 8 inch looks like it's a 2 or 3 inch, probably torted and filled.

This is what I came up with (looked at the pic before I read the thread).

The bottom cake does not look large enough to be a whole 12". And the top two are very close in size....then of course the heights are different. I think the bottom and top layers are a nice full two layer cake (or torted into four layers) and the middle cake is just a single layer torted.

If you ignore the middle tier for a moment, you can see how the bottom and top tiers seem to relate as a 10" and 6". Then add the middle layer and the way its arranged it does look like a 7". Although I think you could use an 8" and it would actually look better.

my guess is that the top tier is a 6" round 2 layer 2"deep pan (4"-4 1/2" total height), the second tier an 8" round 3" deep pan torted into two layers, or a single layer (3"-3 1/4" total), and the third layer a 12" round 2 layer 3" deep pan (6"-6 1/2" total). that's my thinking based on the proportions. hope this helps and goog luck!!! i like the variations in sizes it will make a beautiful cake
