I have seen many cakes that have the illusion of topsy turvy but it looks like different size pans were used but not cut with the severe angle. Below is the look I am trying to achieve........

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!! icon_confused.gif

So I am assuming to use 3 layers and carve them down a little to achieve this tapered look? HELP PLEASE!

The idea behind using different sized pans is you have less to cut off on the smaller parts. If you use layers that are 1in difference, then you are just trimming a little off of each to make the tapered look.

How much you cut off will determine how much of an tapered angle you have.

so for the bottom 8,9,10 (8 will be on the bottom)? and the top tier 6,7,8?

If you want a two inch taper from top to bottom then yes you would do those sizes.
