To me the bottom layer looks 4", then 2" and 2". Guessed looking at the flowers. 
The plane looks awesome. Though I didn't post a reply, I've been following yours and others. I admire your courage and determination. I would have liked a little bit of color on the wedding cake. But it was beautiful. Wish you all the best!
I have renter's insurance... Will call them first thing tomorrow morning... Thanks K8memphis... I was going around checking other insurance options... just two months in the business...

Sometimes even my husband asks me 'did you try asking cc members' .
