Round - Some may think that it's too traditional for their liking, but it's actually the perfect (plain) shape for adding textured, swirled, or sculpted frosting.

Square - This is the modern alternative to a round shape because it's different yet still not over-the-top. Tip: Add a geometric or chevron pattern.

Octagon - An eight-sided wonder that will draw attention to your dessert display even without decorations.

Petal - Referred to as the "scalloped" option because of it's resemblence of a flower, this is a must-have for garden wedding.

Multi-Shape - A combination of round, square, and octagon. It can even be topsy turvy too!
