Bride wants cake to look like this.... http://www.peggyporschen.com/Tiered-Cakes/cake-details.asp?offset=-1&id=180

looks like 3" tiers alternate with 6" tiers.
a) How do i achieve the tall tiers...do you think 3" and 4" could pass and look similar?
b) even if i use foam board under the 4" tiers, it wouldnt be as pictured.

Honestly, I don't think 3" and 4" would be enough of a height difference to get the desired look. 2" and 4" might work, though. How many servings? What size pans are you planning on using? I think that would make a difference in determining how tall your tiers would need to be.

Beautiful cake, btw. I'll be anxious to see your version of it! icon_smile.gif

I think the cake as pictured is 2 and 4" tiers (or maybe 2 and 5"). But um... how many people are you needing to feed? Seems like awful short notice to be deciding on cake sizes icon_smile.gif

I would not use 3 and 4", they are too close and will look more like a mistake than a design element.

You will need to make the appropriate heights of cake, don't rely on extra boards to do the trick.
