This may be a silly question but I need help please...

I want to bake a two tier cake for my friend's party. I am rubbish when it comes to sizes and proportions but here I have attached a picture of the exact size of both of the tiers of the cake I wanted to bake. So what is the best cake tins size in (inches) be suitable to match this picture... 

Can anyone help please. I be grateful for any advice and comments :-)

Many Thanks, 

Em x

10" on bottom and 8" on top would be my guess.

That looks like an 8 and 6 to me, both about 5" tall.  Looks like it's on a 12" cake board.  

But really, it's more about how many servings you need.  You can do 10/8, 8/6, 6/4.

I agree. Looks more like an 8 and a 6 to me... with a tiny rose cake at the side. Really you should be working from how much CAKE you need...  A 10 and an 8 would give you something between 50 - 60 portions... do you need that much? If not, I recommend you go for the slightly smaller tins..
