For a stacked wedding cake (6, 8 and 10-in.) what sizes do the separator plates need to be?

Angie - from Toronto, Ontario

The separator plates should be 2 inches larger than the diameter of the cake. For a stacked wedding cake of 6, 8 and 10-inch tiers, the separator plates should be 8, 10 and 12-inch respectively.
