if you look at this template for a tombstone:

it's the same principal of stacking layers of sheet cake (the blue/green layers)

just work with size that approximates the size/shape of bag you're making

remember -- just like with a normal tiered cake, to support internally and use cakeboards every two layers (4 inches).

it is in essence a multi-tiered cake where all the tiers are the same size.

When I did my Victoria's secret bag I used a 11x15 in pan and cut in 4 equal parts (i'm not sure the measurements..i use a ruler) and I chill them for a bit then stack & fill them. I used 4 dowels on the bottom two layers and also the top two and one long dowel down the center. HTH
