thanks you know that was my 1st thought ....bct...
but i wasnt sure that i would do it justice....those are cool ideas...


I really thought that should do something really different and was even thinking of a stacked cake....

since it is a large group of ladys.....i guess i just want WOW them so that they dont forget me when the next anyting comes up ....


wilton had a married couple in one of their books that was 3 teirs the 1st was the head and so on ....more like a cartoon....i was thinking of making a fondant or gumpaste capr with a cool design you know like the king would wear.....but when i search their was only one cape that they showed the back of the red,white, and blue eagle....and i wasnt sure i liked it......

my husband says im crazy ....

Blue suede shoes.... & that smile!!!!!! I'm 37 & I'm a big Elvis fan!!!! I haven't even seen all his movies either! Have fun!!

A thought was to write some of the song titles on the side of the cake. I also like a shilloutte (sorry for the typo) and maybe the lyrics to a song on top with Elvis in front of them.

I love the idea of writing lyrics from some of his songs...you could maybe do a music sheet with notes and words or something....Long Live the King!

What about a carved sheet cake in the shape of and decorated as the gates of Graceland?
