Hi all! I am making a cake and I am stumped on what size to go. I am thinking either a 14, 11, 8 & 5, or 15, 12, 9 & 6. The top will be a keeper cake. It is for 175-200 guests, so I know there will be enough cake. I added the inspiration cake from the bride. She is very open to what I think will work. Any ideas? Do you think one of those combos will look better than the other?

Thanks

Ok, I am trying to attach the photo to look at and it is not letting me, so here is the link. It is the main big picture on the page. Thank you.

I would choose the 14, 11, 8 & 5. I like the small 5" on top.

Thanks, that was what I was thinking. I like the small one on top too!

I like the smaller on top too. To keep the proportions right, keep the tiers on the tall side. At least that is the impression I get from the cake.
