I mistakenly bought three square pans 12x12x2, 10x10x2 and 8x8x2 and the sizes are so close to each other that when i stacked the cake the layers where really close to edges of the larger cake layer.... I have attached a copy of the cake i made. as you can see from the top it doesnt even look like a tier cake... Im make a new cake this weekend with the same pans cause i cant afford to buy new ones.. any one have any idea how i can doctor up the middle and top to make it look more tiery..lol I was thinking just take a knife to it but im scared i cant afford to mess it up and have to make new layer......  or do you think it looks ok I just think i need more of a ledge for the flowers im makeing this time

 

 thank you 

 

at the bottom i have an idea picture for what the mother to be wants her cake to look like

If all servings aren't required from those sizes, I'd carve down the 10" square to a 9" and carve the 8" square down to a 6"... a 12x9x6 square will serve 130 and you'll gain more of a ledge you're looking for with a more eye-appealing gradual stack rather than a short, squatty look with all large tiers.
