Three 8” layers each one 2” tall  should give enough servings for 25 people.

I am sorry, but I do not understand what you mean.  By three different size cakes, do you mean a three tier cake?  Please be a little more specific or attach an example of what you are describing.

You will need to bake one layer each in different size pane — probably 8”,9”,&10” OR three layers in a 10” pan & cut it to form the shape.   Im thinking a 4th layer might be needed to ensure enough servings.

Thanks for attaching the pictures, Miladis!  Now I can help you. 

Here are a couple of good tutorials showing how to carve a topsy turvy cake and a  Mad Hatter cake.  The same technique applies to the picture you posted, just don't taper the top or use the exact same shape as the Mad Hatter cake.  You will need a good, sturdy recipe and the cake needs to be frozen before you start to carve. It will be easier to carve with the small surface on top, then flip it when you are through carving.

To serve 25, you need a 12" round cake.  I suggest doing a double barrel with four 2" tall layers or six 1-1/2" layers divided by a cake board in the middle.  Here is a video showing how to stack a double barrel.  Since you will be carving it, be sure the center cake board is slightly smaller than the cake to allow for the taper.  By doing a double barrel, you can get away with using a 9" or 10" because only half of the height will be used as a serving.

In case you do not have a sturdy cake recipe, here is kakeladi's Original WASC, which can be adapted to any flavor, is super moist and sturdy enough to stack and carve.

Best of luck and give a shout if you have any more questions.
