Here's the cake a bride wants. She wants it separated like shown but every other tier to be square and the sizes will be 6, 8, 10, 12, 14. I think that the squares will be a bit too large and hang over the rounds but since it's separated (roses between) will it work or should I advise her to choose one shape.
She doesn't want to do other sizes either. So not an option. Also, I use the sps system in my cakes so what do I order to use with that to hold the cake up and separate it??? I know indydeb will know this one! Are you out there??? Thanks a bunch everyone!

I'm no expert hopefully someone will get back to you that has better experience, but I think the hang over will look strange even with the separation. You may want to try stacking cake pans in those sizes just to get a feel for the look.

I'm not sure it will look the same because of the picture being on the round and then the square it would be awkward to me. My opinion may not count but I believe it should be round. It has a better look square. Good Luck!

I agree. But what about the equipment to buy for the sps and separtors? Anyone know?

Ok, after sincerely thinking about this. I think you could do the hexagon and the picture looks like they used push in pillars and the roses are just setting there. If she wants round and square suggest the hexagon it has a better appeal than the square. I believe you should get the same affect and still be able to work with the sizes she is asking for. I hope I answered your question.

I think the hexagon, like Nicki9774 suggested would be perfect. I'd explain that the alternating shapes, for this particular style, may look odd. But, if she went with all hexagon, she's getting the best of both worlds...

Well, Thank You for agreeing with me! I thought about it all last night and I came up with this and I believe it will work and if the bride wanted round and hexagon it would still work. I would tell her that its the best you can do.
