Acetate sheets for Momofuku Birthday Cake

v

Looking to make a birthday cake from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook and it calls for the use of acetate sheets. Having looked at a couple local places for this product unsuccessfully, I turned to Google only to find out they come in a million different sizes and prices. I double-checked the book to see if there was a specified size and didn't see one, and every blog that I came across that did cakes from this book didn't specify either. Can anyone give me some advice on what I should be getting? I can't visualize how 'tall' this cake will be ultimately. I appreciate any feedback!

    It's listed in the "special equipment" in the sidebar next to each cake recipe. You need a 6-inch cake ring, and 2 strips of acetate, each 3"x20".

      If you live near a TAP Plastics store, you can see the different thicknesses and buy as much or as little as you like there. You'll want one of the the thicker ones for the Momofuku cakes so that it'll hold the shape.
