Hexagonal Cake Tins

Browse our heavy duty tin plated and aluminium hexagonal cake tins, available in a wide range of sizes. These tins are great for wedding and birthday cakes as a unique alternative to our standard round and square cake tins.

Just to confuse us all - while the 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. This is just a guide and allows approx 1.5" 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.
