You're welcome...   The decorator posted that it's a smash cake so I imagine the layers were pretty small...but that design could be sized up easily, if needed...   You could always try PMing her for more info, though I notice she hasn't been active here in almost a year.   http://cakecentral.com/g/i/2369763/smash-cake-for-an-ice-cream-shoppe-themed-party/u/671162/sort/upload_time/
