This should help you gauge how tall it is. I didn't do enough image searching to find out who made it.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

 

You can make it 5ft tall, yes. Just secure all those dummies very well and use the correct supports in the real cakes. 

 

Please make sure you charge megabucks for this cake - there is a lot of detail work and you will likely have to have the dummies custom made too. 

 

Personally, I think having a cake taller than yourself is incredibly pretentious, but each to their own.

 

Good luck!

How much cake do they need to serve? If you can get enough cake out of teh bottom 2 tiers, I would do the rest in dummies. http://www.dallas-foam.com/cake-dummies/standard-cake-dummies/pillow-cake-dummies.html

 

This is the guy who made that cake: Chef Omar Addihaoui of Opera Cafe

The cake I made, is not like the model before, but is what I agree with the bride to be able to have the height she wanted, it was 4' 8"
