Round or square cake with buttercream (no fondant)?! Why?

Just curious what people use most!

I would think it would depend on the style/look they were going for, and how many servings are needed.

Depends on how many servings my customer orders. With having round and square it just gives me more options for servings so I can get them closer to the number they want/need. I don't care about the shape when icing or doing fondant. Although I personally find squares easier to fondant than rounds.

If we're just talking personal preference - I've always preferred rounds to work with. Lately, though, I've made a concerted effort to try and work with more square cakes and I'm finding them pretty enjoyable. I still struggle with the corners some, but it gets easier each time!

I do much better with squares. I counted up one time and out of 19 consecutive cakes, 15 of them were square. So evidently I'm pretty good at selling the brides on square ones, too! icon_biggrin.gif

And I'm a 30-year-buttercream gal. Just recently got pulled into fondant world. Found it so freakin' easy, it's almost a sin that we charge more for it!

I like round because it's just easy. I like square because it seems elegant and offers more servings.

interesting!! Thanks everyone! I'm trying to decide what to do for my next cake and thought I would see what everyone else usually does! This is going to be my first big all buttercream cake........ahhh! I feel a little more secure using fondant since it covers all my mistakes but now I have a challenge!
