Square Wedding Cake Picture Ideas
A square wedding cake can be just the thing to give your wedding a modern and fashionable feel.
As well as providing a sophisticated centrepiece, a square cake can actually serve more people than a round wedding cake of similar dimensions.Square cakes can be made as a single large square or in a traditional tiered design.
When it comes to decorative options, the square shape lends itself to creative interpretations.
The tiers of a square cake can be decorated to look like a stack of prettily - wrapped gifts - especially if the tiers are placed at a slight angle to each other instead of lining up the corners.
You could also consider something even more unusual and personal. A single layer square cake could be decorated to look like an aquarium, a book or photo album - even a football field for a sport-loving happy couple.
For a more intellectual bride and groom, a black and white icing in a checked design could be accented with fondant chess-pieces for a memorable chessboard cake.
Square cakes also work well with classy abstract or geometric designs. Some cake decorators play up the novel shape of a square cake with angular motifs.
An alternative is to use circles, swirls and curving shapes as a contrast to the shape of the cake itself.
Whether you want a strikingly avant-garde design or a more romantic and traditional cake, a square cake is the perfect choice.
