I'm doing a wedding cake for Halloween and the bride requested different shaped tiers but didn't really specify what shapes. I was thinking hexagon square circle, but my question is how hard is it to cover that bottom shape? Ive done squares and circles before and I have this nagging voice in my head that says "somewhere you heard that was hard" lol

any thoughts?

Hi, I haven't covered a Hexagon before. But I have seen Shugarshack doing it on her dvd. And it doesn't look hard. I think a petal shaped cake is more difficult to cover than a hexagon. icon_smile.gif

I think the hex is even easier than the square. I love octogon and hexagons.

I think hexagons are easy. I have done 3 tiers all hexagons and the fondant goes on very nicely. Easier than squares!
