The measurement of the cake topper is as follows: Measures 4 3/4" Tall, 6 1/4" Wide (together).

What size cake would you do, 8in? The bride wants to put a few leaves under the cake topper, like a nest, as well.

Thank you for the help

That's probably a 6". Once you get done icing an fondant covering, you get more room to work with on top and the sides. Looks like it just fits nicely...could be wrong though. Too large of a top tier, and it will look unbalanced.

There are 7 inch cake pans as well. Just put the topper over a 6" and also over a 8" upside down pan to see which fit and look better.
