OK, let's see if this makes any sense. Judging by the picture, this is what it looks like to me:
From top to bottom (each cake is a different letter & in height order)

A) two 4" x 3" torted and stacked

B) two 8" x 3" torted, stacked and carved to make the curve

C) two 4" x 3" torted and stacked

D) two 6" x 3" torted, stacked and carved to make the curve

E) one 10" x 3" torted

F) one 6" x 2" carved (possibly torted- don't fill the 6 x 3 pan as high with batter)

To carve the curve, use the curvature of the bottom of the pan that is to be inserted into the carved cake as a guide. So, if the carved cake is the female (concave) and the uncarved cake the male (convex), I would use the bottom of the male pan as a template, making an imprint on the female cake. From there, carve away. Hopefully this makes sense. Good luck and let me know if I was unclear.

Yeah like she said... Although they look a little more like the largest being a 12" and the smallest being a 6".
