Does anyone know of any online stores where I can purchase hexagon separate pillar systems? I have done a search and so far all the places have square, round or heart. I know this is a stupid question but If there is no places would it be ok if I use one of the other shapes? Thanks in advance

i would use rounds with a board cut to the size and shape of your cake.

I have done this before. I used cardboard the hex shape of the cake and used a round sps. Worked great!

Hope that helps

Not a stupid question! HEXAGON cakes are the stupid thing! Lol...just kidding. I was searching for the exact same thing, and yes, use the round plates. Hopefully, I lost the bid on the hex cakes I was going to be working on. Ugh!

I don't think it's a matter of anyone selling them "yt", because I saw several sites where support systems were completely discontinued....therefore, for lack of people buying the dumb things in the first place! Yuch...I hope I never have to do a hex cake. They are beautiful if done right, but I don't want to try it!

I am ok with that but I have another question. Should I use the same size as the cake or an inch smaller to avoid it being seen? Or maybe by the time it gets iced and bordered I won't have to worry about it?

Go a size lower. If you aren't sure of the dimensions, put a plate under the size of hex pan you are working with, make sure it is slightly smaller, so yes, you won't have the smaller plate show on the edges. A little bit smaller won't affect the support around the edges, your cardboard should be fine. Thanks to Leahs for that advice there... icon_smile.gif

Try logicpic .com. I think they have every shape you could want.

Thank you for that web-site. I have been looking everywhere for hexagon separator plates. Wilton has discontinued making them.
