Hello! 


Im trying to determine cake pan sizes for a wedding cake. I like the sizes of the tiers in this cake , can someone help me determine the  pan sizes ? They don't seem to be the norm (2 inch apart) . 

Thank you!

Pictures can be very deceiving :(  What is more important is how many servings you need.  Base the size of the tiers on that.    Also, if you look closely the top tier looks like it might a small heart.

They definitely look like going in 1" increments.  My best educated guess ...but I think from top to bottom it is 4" (only 3" high), 5" (at 4" high), 6" (at 4" high ), 7" (at 2" high) and 8" (at 4" high) on a 10" board.

I dont think the top tier is a heart shape, the light is just playing tricks..


Very pretty design!

Hello 

I normally just do that.  I just like this look and truly I didn't want to make a huge bottom tier.   The bride wants a 4 tier cake and I am trying to figure out the best combo for 90 servings. 


Also , I think you are right on the heart top :)


Thank you :)

I think you are right about the 1 inch increments.   I have never tried to this look but I look forward to the opportunity to do so. 


Thank you and I totally agree!  I wish I could find the mold/cutter they used for the applique.

The applique may be as simple as leaf cutters and a heart cutter, with some random 'strikes' with a dresden tool for texture.  Placing some tracing/baking paper over the photo whilst you assemble all the leaves & heart in place, will keep you on track.

I agree with this poster.
