Place the 9-inch cake layer on a serving plate; frost sides and top. Lining up the backs of the layers, place the 6-inch cake on top of the 9-inch cake; frost sides and top. Repeat with remainging 4-inch cake. If desired, tint any remaining frosting; decorate with tinted frosting and flowers. Serves 24.
