Having trouble deciding if these have a 2" or 4" difference in size because of the tapered tiers. What do you think 14, 10 and 6 or 12, 10 and 8?

no ideas?

Here's the actual pic so you don't need to download the file

If not smaller. I think it's the smallest of the two you suggested.

Actually, I vote for 6-9-11.

I believe 6x8x10 because without tapering it would only have a 1" difference in size.

Unless it's just a deceptive angle, the top tier looks to have a 3" difference to the middle one, and then the middle one seems to have a 2" difference.

Clarification:  2" difference in size (with 1" on each size).

I vote 6, 8, 10, based on squaring the edges, like so:

 

Or tiny tiers, such as 4, 6, 8

Thanks for doing that Anna, it does make it easier to see. It kinda looks like there is a bigger difference between the top and middle than the middle and bottom to me. Maybe a 12, 10 and 6?

I thought so too, but thought that maybe the top got carved too much, or it is the angle, or maybe it doesn't really matter, as long as you have your proper serving count, and the cakes aren't too big or too small icon_biggrin.gif It can either be a 2" or 3" difference, and it is cute, either way!

Ok, one more question, well maybe two, icon_redface.gif. Do you think these are standard height? Two 2" cakes with filling, so around 5' high or do you think they are taller like most tapered tiers I see? And the dragees, I was guessing most of them are 5mm with a few larger.

I vote standard height.

Ok, I know I've had a lot of questions on this one,lol. But before I order the pearls, I was thinking 5mm and 10mm. Most of them are the same size with a few large ones thrown in there here and there. What do you guys think?

post #15 of 39
Way to go Anna!

Paulstonia, have you seen 10 mm in person? 8 mm may even be too big. Diond party confetti has a great printable chart. I would guess more like 4, 5, & 6 mm.
