Looking for opinions on this picture of a "Tangled " cake. I keep looking at this picture trying to figure out if each tier is 2 cakes each. Any input would be helpful.

So far I have made 2- 10" cakes for the bottom and made 1- 6" cake that only measures 3 1/2". I guess I need to make all tiers 6".The top must be what you are talking about torted? The place I got the picture said that the tower was rkt. Should I make it a smaller cake and then put rkt for the remaining length of tower?

To me it looks like 2-10" cakes and 2-8" cakes, but if you wanted to smaller you could do 2-8" and 2-6". What the gray part of the tower looks like to me is a upside down terra cotta flower pot covered in fondant (maybe that's what they did. Line a flower pot the size you need with cling wrap, pack in some RCT , and pull it out once it's "molded"...cover with BC and add your fondant. Top could very well be RKT as well.

What is RCT? Rice Krispie Treats?

Yes...Rice Krispy Treats. When I wrote RCT it was a typo.
