Ideas Please! Need to make ONE cake for 6 different people. - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Angie, your cake is darling! Thanks for sharing.

hula1974~~I made a buttercream hexagon cake for an elementary school teacher. It is the perfect way to have 6 distinct panels for each birthday. This cake was made using the Wilton 12"x2" hexagon pan. I used three, 2" high layers. The finished cake was 12" x 6". The Wilton wedding serving chart says that a 12" hexagon pan that is 4"-6" tall serves 40. (The cake will not serve 40 if you cut a wedge as shown in my photos below.)

Using the 6" height provides a nice square shape for each hexagon. If you only make it 4" tall, the shapes will be rectangular.

I used a 16" ceramic tile from Home Depot as my base. I covered the tile with fondant and put a 1/4" ribbon around the edge. I also put foam "feet" on the scratchy bottom part of the tile so it would not scratch any surfaces.

Here are different views of the same cake:

I had this same dilemma having to do a family cake for 12 people. I did the Hex cakes, and it worked great. The hard part was trying to find a unifying color as I didn't want a white background. I chose green...
