I am trying to find hexagon shaped cake plates for a tiered cake. Appears that Wilton no longer makes them. I have a bride who wants a 3 tiered hexagon shaped cake, what do I do?
I have tried to google for hexagon shaped cake plates, but am not having any luck.
Does anyone know where to find them, or at least what kind to use to it doesn't look awful!??
When all else fails.......be the mother of invention
Use sq or even round plates closest to the size of the cake. That little bit ofcake that is not supported on a plate should not be a problem.
kakeladi is right ... the cardboard under the cake will support those tips of cake that extend over the plate. Just be sure your cardboards are cut to the size of the cake and you'll be fine.
I just watched a program that Martha Stewart did for an ON DEMAND program for cable. It was about getting this type of shape for a wedding cake. She took square cakes and had taken a piece of cardboard/cake board and had it cut to the dimensions she needed and lined it up with the square cake and trimmed it to the template size she made. She did this with all three tiers of the cake and it worked out great. I am sorry to hear that Wilton discontinued the pans. There are a lot of brides that are choosing this still. Wish I had a better answer for you. Good luck! Let us know how it comes out for you!
