The picture is taken from a generous angle. 10, 8, 6" square cakes. From this angle cake looked awesome. MMF, MMF red polka dots (I made myself!!) and royal icing string work. One corner in the back sloped way down.... I had put the whole thing on my silver cake stand, only to realize I needed the cake stand for a wedding I was doing and had to MOVE the thing onto a white wilton 16" cake plate.... And the 16" plate BOWED! So the whole cake buckled on the bottom from moving it and the bowing of the plate.
