I've never done a mixed shape cake but like them very much. I'd like to know what are the combinations that work well together. Can you help me get some mixed shapes together for 3-6 tier cakes? Thank you.

This is what I came up with:

5 round, 6 square, 10 round and 12 square

7 round, 8 square, 12 round

5 round, 6 square, 9 round, 10 square.

What mixed shape pan size have you done?

From the bottom up, the most chosen with my brides is: round, petal, hex, round.

oohh leah I love that combo, never thought of it... gonna look at the gallery to see them. I have mostly round and square for mine and they are mostly party cakes. i have done round and hearts though which I didn't like at all but they insisted!

I did this cake a few weeks back - it required some carving, but turned out not too bad. It is a 12" octagon, 10" round, 8"octagon, 6" round, 4" octagon. I cut the octagons from a 2" higher round. If I were to do it again, I would not be so dumb and cut them from squares instead. I felt like and idiot when I figured out that would have been easier. But, you live and learn. It's also in my gallery if you want to save it or something...
