Yikes...I did that wrong. The cake is posted in the new cake gallery and this is NOT my cake. The customer sent it to me...here's the link which is probably what I should have done in the first place...sorry. http://suhaag.com/weddings/ombre-metallic-tall-towers-wedding-cake-trends-this-year/ Like I said...I'm just trying to get a grip on the tier sizes.
That's what it looks like to me too. The bottom and 3rd tier look like normal 4 inch height and the other two look like their probably 6 inches high.
Thanks...now I can see it
I would guess that the tiers are 4, 6, 8 and 12. The tier with the ruffles is going to get substantially wider than a normal 8" tier just because of the volume of the ruffles. You need a larger tier on the bottom to look proportional.
Thanks Dani. I hadn't thought of that.
