Tiers are separated by foam discs wrapped in ribbon & decorated w/crystals. Bottom & top separators are 2" high & rest are 1" high. All are 2" smaller diameter than cake below and 1" smaller than cake above. Bottom tier is Divine Amaretto cake with almond paste/frosting filling; next is WASC with Jam Filling (raspberry); rest are Triple Chocolate Fudge cake w/ganache & chopped maraschino cherries. Tons of compliments on taste & design.
