Well in the pic it looks rather large, however 2′ and 4′ is not that big at all.  But how many people will it feed?

Consider it this way: a normal cake layer is usually about 2 inches, depending on your cake pan. So each four inch layer would be about the height of a 2 layer layer cake. That’s a pretty tall cake, my concern would be more about the shape and width of your layers. She should be able to tell you how many people it will feed.

One other thing… the cake she mentioned does sound shorter than the cake you posted. That top layer especially looks larger than 4″.

I agree the top layer looks like it should be taller than the other heights listed.  I would call her and ask if she noticed that in the picture.

I’m not sure what is standard, but 16” does seem REALLY small.  The cake in the pic appears to be a lot taller.  If you’d like it to be taller, maybe you can ask her to make it in different dimensions??
