Polka-Dot Offset Square Wedding Cake

A square wedding cake is a great way to add some uniqueness to your wedding. They are definitely becoming increasingly popular and there are so many things you can do with them.  The cake pictured above shows offset squares with a simple polka-dot  ribbon placed neatly around the bottom edge of each cake.  The ribbon on the base of each level of cake could also be made of fondant icing if you wanted to go that route. It could then be accented with edible candy decorations etc. The cakes themselves are each covered in smooth white fondant. If you can get the knack of smoothing the fondant icing down, this would be a pretty simple, yet elegant and classy cake design that beginners could attempt to make on their own.

Square wedding cakes are usually tiered with the largest square being on the bottom and the smallest on the top. They can also be separated and displayed on cake stands of different heights.  Each cake tier can be the same flavor or different flavors depending on the choice of the bride and groom.

Covering a square cake with fondant is much easier to do than a round cake. Many people prefer this option as well so the wedding cake can easily be made by a close friend or family member to save on wedding costs.

There are so many creative and unique things you can do when designing a square cake for your wedding day. Have fun.
