starcitycakes, be sure to let us know how your square cake turns out. I am doing a chocolate, chocolate, chocolate groom's cake at the end of April - complete with chocolate covered strawberries. I am planning on a square or hexagon ... the b&g don't care as long as it is chocolate. I have thought about cutting tiles out of the chocolate or doing chocolate cigars so that I wouldn't have to try to turn the corners. I would love to hear how yours turns out.

Yes, you can do a square cake. If you look in my photos, the first one is square. I just made "panels" of chocolate the right size and attached them. But, I don't see any reason you couldn't just wrap around a corner!
Like I said, I used parchment paper. I just folded it over into thirds to make it easier to handle.

Jodie...OOH Ok I see. Folding it would make it stronger and I would have never thought of that myself haha.... I was thinking maybe just do it in sections but then I would have a seam at the corners. So I may just try to wrap it, I can make my DH help me icon_biggrin.gif

MBT...I will definatly put a picture on here...

ok...I can get some of that icon_biggrin.gif. I think I'm gonna experiment this afternoon. I don't want to wait till Friday night to do it and then mess it up. So if I get it right tonight I'll post pics of my practice cake.

I have a question about CUTTING this..will it crumble and fall apart and stuff?? I don't want it to make a big mess for whoever is going to be cutting the cake at the wedding.

No..mine didn't crumble. I just cut through the chocolate. The worst that happened was the chocolate came off the buttercream.

Thank you so much for the info on how to do this. I tried a practice cake today. THe first attempt didn't set up enough and looked ugly. I peeled it off and did it again. Much better. The seam needs to be alittle neater where the acetate was pieced. The "real" one will have some chocolate clay decorations on the top and sides. Hopefully I can hide anything too ugly. Thanks again. Never thought I could do as well as I've done. Time to eat it.
