OK new idea! Is there anyway that this is even size rounds & odd size square?? B/c I stacked my cake dummies (trying 6R ,8S, 12R, 14S, that's as big as my dummies get) & is didn't look like the picture! But when I stacked (6R, 6S, 12R, 12S, & then I used my 16Round pan & the 12" Square didn't fit on top of it?!?!) But It looked alittle alot more like the picture! So then I thought if I did odd sized square it should work but I have no odd shapped pans or dummies! So it would be 6R, 7S, 12R, 13S, 18R, 19S.

Does this make since?

can you provide a link to a pic? And if you can change your subject line to something like "Need help with cake shape/sizes", you might get more responses than just a subject line of "cake". (I mean, this whole site is about "cake"! icon_biggrin.gif )

That's because you need 16.97 for the 12" to fit.

That won't work either... the 13S needs 18.38 to fit.

This might help...
Right angle measurements:
4" 5.66
5" 7.07
6" 8.49
7" 9.9
8" 11.31
9" 12.73
10" 14.14
11" 15.56
12" 16.97
13" 18.38
14" 19.8
15" 21.21
16" 22.63
17" 24.04
18" 25.46

(So it would be 6R, 7S, 12R, 13S, 18R, 19S.)

No, because if you're replacing the 18R with a 19R dummy, you aren't going to have enough servings for your 250 goal (as stated in your other thread). It would only serve 166 + 12 (top tier) = 178. If you were to use real cake for the 19R, it adds 142 servings, now you're over the goal with 308/320 servings.

If you'd like to make a smaller/tighter version of this cake with fewer servings, this would be closest to your 250 goal: 4r, 5s, 8r, 9s, 13r, 14s (serving: 6/10/24/40/67/98 = 239/245).

Or, a larger version that isn't so tight: 4,5, or 6"r top tier, 7s, 10r, 12s, 18r, (+20s dummy) (serving: less than 12 for top tier/25/38/72/127/0 for dummy = 262/274). Don't forget to charge for dummy tier. HTH.
