I have made about 4 different cakes in the last 3 weeks and I started thinking  how cool it would be to be given a theme and we have to design a cake to go along with it.  I now there are a few of us crafty ladies  that could do this, but it would have to be a cake and not cardboard.  I find it a challenge when someone says make me a circus cake, or a racing cake to come up with something really off the wall.  anyone else?

Did you do the slot car cake with the real track on it???  (We did one for a friend's 30th b-day---)  We called it 'reclaiming youth'- and had everyone bring their favorite toys from childhood--- what a blast--- but more people wanted to play with the cake than eat it...  LOL

I was in a production of "Little Women" and  offered to do cake for the cast party. I went overboard and did "doll cakes" for every memeber of the cast in costume, and even frosted a sweater on a Ken doll for Laurie.  The plaid dresses were the worst.It was insane and I wouldnt do it again. But they were just adorable and everyone felt so special that they had their own doll and cake. Unless I got to do Scarlett O'Hara's costume changed from Gone With the Wind maybe.

Nah, I just made  made the top look like a race track then stuck real cars on it, I had 5 little 5 year olds fighting for the cars on top of the cake until I told them they were from cole's, my sons, personal collection.

*chuckles*  That's cute--- you should have seen the 15 ex-frat guys fighting over the 2 controllers on my friend's cake...    Somehow, not as cute as the little boys--- but still, I imagine, the exact same thing...

LOL

I think this would be very fun. I think there should be a price limit on what we could spend and the entire cake should be edible.
