I'm making a cake for a friend's 16th b-day. She designed the cake herself. She wants a 3 tier cake with mini cupcakes surrounding the top tier. I was thinking of 10", 8", and 6" , but worried about how that will look when the cupcakes go around the top tier. Any thoughts?

I don't think cupcakes are going to fit. That would only leave a 1 inch border around the top tier. Maybe use 12, 10 & 6???

sorry......I just read again and realized you said "mini" cupcakes. still my mini cupcake liners say 2 inch??? maybe you can take your pans stack them upside down, and put the empty liners around the tier to see if they fit?? At this point i may have been more confusing than helpful icon_redface.gif

I agree with another creation. Those sizes wont leave you enough of a ledge for the mini's. I am afraid even with a 4 inch difference it will be tight. Did she make up this design or did she see it somewhere? Could you do cake balls instead of mini's so you could control the size?

Thanks for the replies! She made this up herself. She really wants cupcakes. She's doing a "sweet" 16 party where the cake will be covered in different candy and she wants cupcakes too. I'm thinking a 12", 10", 6" will be the best option. I may see if she'd be okay with the cupcakes around the bottom tier. That would be easier. Thanks for the input!!
