I would personally have identical spacing between all the layers, so either 14, 10, 6 or 12, 10, 8.  Which size you pick would probably need to depend on the number of guests you are feeding.  If you starting with the 12″ on bottom, you could always add a 6″ on top if you wanted to.

 

Edit: I think this looks really nice for a first attempt!

I think the top tier should be smaller it will make it look more uniform and match the bottom better.

I like it. For smoother frosting check out Michael’s or Joanne’s or something along those lines for a “smoother”. It looks a lot like what you use to smooth out drywall putty. Some of them come with little spikes to make lines in the frosting too.

I think with that style cake the smaller ledge looks better. I love the cake. Are those fresh flowers?

i actually kind of like the ‘fluffy’ icing – it’s got a nice texture to it.

@stephie I thought you were looking for tips on how to smooth it out lol Sorry! I do like how it looks and I would go with the bigger spacing between the layers rather than the smaller one.

Great job here!  I love the textured look of the icing and agree that the spacing between you cake pans sizes should even so your ledges are more even. OR you could add even more flowers and greenery to hide any differences in the circumferences in case you wanted to add a 6″ for  fourth (top) tier)… 

Looks delicious!
