Will this look nice?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was asked to make a cake for a friend's daughter and since she's don't cakes herself for weddings she had a pretty firm idea of what she wanted.
She asked me to make a cake like the one in the picture, except that she wanted it done larger...not taller...larger. She wants a 10 in. round with 14 inch hexagon on the bottom.
"Basically a short fat cake." she said.
I'm curious if you guys think that combo of sizes will maintain the proportions of this lovely picture.
Should I use a 15 in hexagon pan instead? I have time. The wedding isn't until November.
Input, advise??

If you measure that hexagon pan, it's not a full 15" so just use the pan you have.

If all pans are a little bigger (up to 2") the proportions will be close enough. The bride is unlikely to be sitting there ar the reception with a laser measuring system...

That worked! See how there's a nice space from one tier to the next, see how the flowers have a nice 'seat' rather than hang off the edge?. I'm worried that it will be lost in this size up.

I haven't ordered the cake pan yet. I'm thinking I need the larger one.

Got the pic this time. Ah-hah. That's 8" round and 15" hex for sure.

If you need to do the top one 10" then you need a 16" round pan for the bottom tier (it will give you a 16" hexagon).

As long as she wants a short, flat cake, that's what those sizes will look like...that won't look at all like the original.
