Hexagonal Cake Boards

Hexagonal Cake Boards

For an alternative to square or round cake boards, why not place your wedding and celebration cakes on a hexagonal cake board to really make it stand out. Choose from cake drums, hardboard cards and single thick cards in a range of sizes to suit your design.

Choosing The Right Size Hexagonal Board

While hexagonal cake tins are manufactured and measured point to point, the boards are made and measured side to side. You also have to remember that because the tins are measured point to point, they come up slightly smaller than the round tins listed of the same size. To make life a little easier, we have listed the tins, boards and boxes required for single and tiered cakes below. This is just a guide and allows approx 1.5 Inch of board around each cake, which is perfect for most designs using fruit cakes. If you are making sponge cakes and want less board showing, drop down an inch on the boards.
