Hi I am making a 3 teired cake and I really need help. I thought I would do 14" square, 12"round sitting on top then spaced with a 10" for the top teir. I am not sure this is the proper size. I am positive i want to use the 14 and 12 just not sure what the top layer should be..Please help..

If I get lost on what size cake to bake I will stack my cake pans, empty of course, on top of each other. I place the bottom one empty side up. Next I place the same size of the bottom pan. I put it on top of the other empty side down. I continue until I get to the top. The only thing is your tier sperator. I'm not sure if you can put it on the pans, but try and see what happens. You pan put a little tape to help them hold together for stacking. Hope this helps! thumbs_up.gif

Thank you Punkin90. I am going to try this. It's a great idea.

Unless you have a very large topper, I think the 10" at the top is going to look strange. I'd do an 8" at most, and the "standard" top tier size is a 6".

Punkin90 I tried your method and it worked great. I think a 9" would be much better so that is what I am going to do. Thank you again. I will def keep this method in my mind for next time.
KoryAK thank you I have to do a 9" so I have room for the topper its a good size topper and they also want another little one on it with the topper. I don't think it would all fit on a 8"... icon_biggrin.gif
