I have a woman who would like me to make this cake but she wants 4 hexagonal tiers instead. Am i right to assume that there is a cakeplate between the 2nd and 3rd tiers? How do the glasses stay put? Do you cover the hexagon shaped cakes the same as the rounds or squares? Are they harder to do?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, there is a glass plate on the top of the 2nd tier. You can see it if you look very carefully.

I'd be tempted to put a small line of RI around the rims of the glasses to make sure they stay put. But you have to be careful so it doesn't show!

I've covered hex's before, and they aren't hard. Do the corners first, then the flat parts. They are easier than squares, in my opinion.

Good luck and post pics!
