I need Help. I'm getting married May 8th 6 1/2 hrs away from my home and I'm wanting the unusual shape of where it's mostly rounds but some are cut and kinda formed to the other ones. It's hard to explain. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I need example pictures. Help Please.

Yep, I know exactly. If I'm thinking the same, it's called a puzzle and lots of images are on here if you google for them. Colette Peters also has one on her webstite. It's gorgeous. And congrats! Are you making your cake?

Here's Colette's version. It's the black and white square near the bottom, first column.

Yes thats it I didn't know what is was called. I have two partners I opened a shop with in October and they will be doing my cake. I just love this look but didn't know what to call it when I tried to google. does anyone have instructions on how to do this or do you just wing it?

When I made one like that, once I determinded how many servings I needed. Then I made paper circles of the various size pans, laid the circles out, and over lapped the circle so I had the configuration needed, marked the circle, and when it was time to set up the cake, I had the pattern each tier needed to be cut. It was quite simple that way, and I could get a good idea of how it would be when I was done. Hope this makes sense to you. I think I made it sound much harder than it was.
