Help! I need ideas for a "money" cake for a 17 year old girl. That's what she told her mother she wants. Any ideas? Please!!!

I had given some money cake ideas a few days ago when someone was asking about making a "funky money" cake. Someone even posted a picture of money coming out of a bag.

This was my idea for the last request for a money cake:

what about a sheet cake shaped into an open hand and large chocolate or fondant rectangles maybe in different colors like monopoly money fanned out over the hand? Put different denominations on each chocolate or fondant bill.

Or maybe a sheet cake with an edible image of the child on it in place of the president. Make the bill like a million dollars

Well...Since this cake will be for a girl you might do a purse with money spilling out of it...or what about the idea that money doesn't grow on trees and make a tree with money on it?
I'm fresh out of ideas now...sorry!
Hope this helps!

I saw the cutest cake in a book yesterday.... I wish I had a picture. It was a piggy bank with money spilling out of it.

Here is the money bag I posted.... I'm not sure who originally made this cake
