Square Wedding Cakes

square wedding cakes
Here are some square wedding cakes.  This is a 3 tier separated cake with black ribbon.  

To make this square wedding cake, bake 2 layers of each size cake-14"-10"-6".

Each 2 layer size cake can be a different flavor and have a filling if the bridal couple desires it. Bake all of your cakes. Make a ivory colored icing. Put your layer sizes accordingly, putting them on a square cardboard cake circle the size of that cake.

At this time I placed the 14" cake on the cake base. The base was made from a 16" square of plywood covered in gold foil.

Next ice the cakes with a thin coat of ivory icing to catch and hold the crumbs. This is referred to as the crumb coat. Let this set for 2 hours.

Now ice each layer cake making sure it is nice and smooth. Let it set an hour. I assembled this cake using separator plates and 3" pillars. Place the separator plate the size of the cake you will be placing on the 14", and center it on the top of the 14" cake.

The feet on the bottom of the separator plate will make 4 x's on the cake top. It is over the x's that you will center plastic dowel rods and push in all the way to the bottom of the 14" cake.

Cut the first plastic dowel rod level with the top of the 14" cake. The other 3 plastic dowel rods must all be the same size as the first one.

Now flip over the separator plate so that the feet are sticking straight up. This plate will be centered on top of the 14" cake, but before you place it, put a thin coat of the ivory icing on the white plastic surface and smooth it as much as you can.

Now place it on the center of the 14" cake. Place the 3" pillars on the feet of the plate. Set this cake aside. Your cake will be assembled at the site.

Take your 10" cake and place it on the 10" plastic cake separator plate.Place the 6" separator plate on top of the 10" cake and center it on top of the 10" cake. The feet on the bottom of the separator the separator plate will make 4 x's on the cake top. It is over the x's that you will center your plastic dowel rods and push in all the way to the bottom of the 10" cake. The other 3 plastic dowel rods must all be the same size as the first one.

Now flip over the 6" separator plate so that the feet are sticking straight up. This plate will be centered on top of the 10" cake, but before you place it put a thin coat of the ivory icing on the white plastic surface and smooth it as much as you can.

Now place it on the center of the 10" cake. Place the 3" pillars on the feet of the plate. Set this cake aside. Take your 6" cake and place it on a 6" separator cake plate. Set this cake aside.

Gather everything you will need to assemble the cake and pack in a bag---extra icing, cake spatula to smooth any mishaps, etc. Don't forget wipes and paper towels. Remember you have to be prepared for anything that might happen during transport. Place the cakes on foam in vehicle to transport. I just bought a foam mattress pad and cut it up to fit my vehicle. The foam keeps the cakes from moving.

Put the 14" cake and base on the cake table. When ribbon trim is desired on a cake there are a few things you have to do before you put the ribbon on. I always put a piece of clear acrylic, cut as wide as the ribbon and the length of the ribbon that goes around the cake with a few extra inches added. The reason you do this first is so the icing does not bleed through the ribbon.

Next put the ribbon over the acrylic. I use a two sided tape to connect the ribbon, slightly overlapping it. You will put the ribbon on each layer in the same manner putting it on like a wrapped package. It is taped together at the top of each center layer.

Now use an icing filled bag and round tip #5 and make dots all over the 3 cakes . To finish assemble of the square wedding cake, place the 10" cake on top of the 14" cake. The feet on the bottom of the separator plate will fit down into the pillar tops. Do the same procedure for the 6" cake on top of the 10" cake.

For this square wedding cake the florist came in and put the bow on top and white flowers between the layers.
