triangle wedding cake

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
I've been asked by a customer to make a triangle shaped wedding cake. Any ideas or experience with this shape of cake? I would really appreciate any suggestions. icon_smile.gif

I think it would be really fun to try. Just cut the square cakes into triangles and I think you would line them up flush in the back. Sure would like to see your finished masterpiece!!

Instead of buying pans you could just use squares and but them in half and stack.. That might work...

welcome!!

The only thing i see with cutting the squares is that you will have lots of wasted cake and to get the bigger triangles you will have to do larger squares. might be worth it to get the pans if you decide to make this one really good and expect to get many more triangle cake orders.

Silkwoodstudios ebay is also a good way to go.

Yeah you can't just cut the square cake in half because it wouldn't be an equilateral triangle. Wouldn't look like the picture above. Triangle would be wider than it was tall. Just depends on the effect you're looking for.

I have 2 photos of them saved in my Favourites. Apologies, I don't know the bakers of these beauties:

agree with you debbie, there would be waste, oh wait... LOL... wasted cake? around me ? MORE LOL!!!! it would be a good place to test run an experiment cake though.
and sun, sure i do understand SOMEthings about geometry,again it could be done, but , oh dear, more waste!! YEAH >>both types of triangles, what ever the other kind is called would be an option, again all depends on design i guess,maybe after this weekends graduation cake i will put pen to paper and "tri" to work out some kinks before i send off a check for those pans

No, not really! If you took an 8 inch square cake and cut it from one corner diagonally to the center of the other side and then again from the other corner back to the center spot you will have another layer of cake and no waste.

debsuewoo, I was thinking the exact same thing! You are exactly right! One square layer (any size) can be cut into 2 same-size triangle layers that way, with a little icing "glue" down the middle to stick those 2 half-layer sections together.
