This was a 3 tier cake, each tier was two cakes so they were 6 inches deep. The bottom tier was plain Madeira with vanilla buttercream. The middle tier was chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and the top layer was chocolate orange cake with chocolate orange buttercream. I made this for my twins 3rd birthday, I saw this on pink cake box (I think) I knew my boys would love it because it had a giraffe on!!
