Hello everyone! I'm making a mickey mouse cake for a friend. The top tier is a 6 inch Mickey mouse hat type thing and I'm not sure if I should do the bottom tier (his body) a 8 inch cake or a 10 inch cake. I think 8 inch would look good but I want to be able to make sure it feeds everyone at the party! Would it look disproportionate if the bottom was 10 inch?

The 10 inch will look fine. It really won't be so much. Bigger... how about a 9 inch?

This is about what 6" and 8" would look like. How many servings does your friend need anyway?

Thanks a.velardez4390 I never thought of using a 9 inch! I'll have to get one! 


julia1812 those are the pictures I was going off of! I'm even making the little smash cake! She needs to feed 20 people give or take. I made a similar cake for my mom's coworker that was a 10 and 6 inch that looked alright.55d96c9619092.jpeg

Thanks. I'm not selling the cakes so I'm not too worried about the copyright issues :)
