I am going to try and duplicate this cake. I am having a hard time figuring out the dimensions of it though- what size are each of the tiers, can you tell??
Also, I'm attempting the drapes for the first time and would REALLY appreciate as much advice/tips as you could give me!!! Thanks so much!

At a guess I would say 8,10,12,14.... the top tier looks too big to me a 6 and I can't imagine a 10 being the smallest. Don't take that as gospel though!

It's from Graceful Cake Creations.
This looks like a life-size picture, judging by the rose petals.
You could measure it to see.

The scrolls look like freehand piping to me.

As for the draping... I like to make sure the rectangle to use the drape is wide enough so i have plenty of fondant to gather. Also, I like to roll it around 1/16"-1/8" thick depending on the length of the drape. I tend to adjust it sometimes to how long the drape has to go from one point to another. I find if I roll it too thin, the pleats don't have enough body and sag too much. Too thick and it doesn't drape gracefully. I dunno if this makes sense.
