Hello, I am having a little problem with the height on this cake. Do you think the tiers are all 4 inches and the rise tier is only a single or do you thing the rose tier is 4 inches and the others ar 6 or more. The cow tiers are twice the size but could they really be 8 inches?!Tier Height?

I can't really tell.  Maybe the small floral tier is a single 3" single that is torted and the other tiers are 6" tall (two 3" tiers that are sorted).  But I'm just guessing.

I think the important think here is that the rose tier is 1/2 the height of the other three tiers.  The actual size would depend upon how many servings were required.  If I had to blind guess, I would say, as bvwilliams said, the rose tier is about 3" and the other three tiers 6".

A six inch tier looks pretty tall!  This cake has a 14" bottom tier which is 5-1/2" tall, 10" middle tier is 5-1/2" tall and top tier is 6" at 7" tall.Tier Height?

The 3 tiers with cows on them are probably 4" tall.  They look different because they are different sized rounds - a 6"x4" looks taller because it is not as 'fat' :)   And the tier with the roses is most likely 2" (maybe 3" but I doubt it).

That top tier might be taller in order for the cow to fit on it........if you have any styro, stack it up to see what yu like best.  If you don't have styro you can get a simalar idea using your baking pans.

So, I don't know whybi didn't think of this sooner but I looked to see how tall that statue is. It is 9 inches so the tall tiers are definitely 6 inches tall. Thanks everyone forntoye help!
