I was hoping someone would be willing to share a successful step-by-step technique description on how to ice a square wedding cake.
It's one thing to ice a cake with corners, i.e. most of us make sheet b-day cakes all the time. But how do you ice a 4" tall square wedding cake layers with those sharp corners and NO top border whatsoever?
I understand that some decorators who have gotten this technique mastered also try to safeguard it. ;-) That's why I was just HOPING one would share. ;-) I can not be the only one hoping.
Well, if not -- I will just have to work on it myself until I get it. ;-)
But THANK YOU in advance!!!!!!!!!!! Cheers! ;-)
This is the cake I would love to be able to make and have it look like that. ;-)

Been making cakes for a while, but certain things I still don't do that well.
I will check out the video and I think I need to get one of those scrapers and give it s shot. And I realize that like with anything in cakes -- it's a matter of getting lots of practice to get a hang of it. I will practice and keep you posted! ;-) THANK YOU!!!
The picture of the square cake was my first square cake ever.
You are all so wonderful! Thank you soooooo much! ;-)
I do have those plastic scrapers and a small angled spatula, Mjsoldano. And your first square cake is SO beautiful!! I hope mine will turn out like that.
I appreaciate you giving here that link, Chasey. Thank you! Yeap, there's no magic. Just steady hand and a sense of direction are required + good tools.
And so, by April 15th our corporate wants to see re-freshed wedding cake displays at every store. And guess what kind of dummy cake I have to make some time within the next month? ;-)
Yeap, you guessed it! ;-)
I have got to make it work! ;-) So thank you all for all your input! I will keep you posted with an actual dummy cake when it's done. But in the meantime check out the exact look I will have to duplicate. It's very pretty. Flowers are pre-made. I already have them sitting in a box at my work station.
Good luck to me! ;-)
