I've been asked to do a cake for a "Kitchen" themed bridal shower. Basically people have been asked to give Kitchen themed gifts. The gal who ordered was no help, she doesn't even have colors picked for decorations, no idea at all what kind of cake let alone a look... just "kitchen themed" is all she said, followed by "I trust you"/
THe only idea I have so far that would be cute would be doing a gift box cake with the lid open and a rolling pin, spatula and oven mitt sticking out.
ANy other ideas? Is the gift box idea any good?
That sounds like a cute idea! What if you were to mold little fondant items, like the oven mitt, boxes of cereal or flour or sugar, rolling pin, apron, etc and use those as a border?
Or what if you made a sheet cake and put a fondant apron over it, sort of like the cakes that have christening gowns on them, and add an oven mitt to that?
Or shape the whole cake like an apron? That'd be cute.
or a counter top,tiled...complete with sink (carve out two squares either iced smoothly or covered in fondant)and faucet...canisters....a cookbook...utensils...a towel..apron
dish drainer with some dishes in it...
Thanks for the ideas...keep them coming!!!
Could do a cake to look like a stove top with a frying pan on it, with the words "Out of the frying pan and into the fire" j/k
I like your ideas of the gift box, I think that would be a very cute cake. I also love TooMuchCake's ideas on the little molds and using them as borders.
Good luck and keep us posted on want you come up with.
Those are all great ideas! I was thinking of a baking oven/stove top with a miniature bowl of frosting, a decorated cake and rolling pin or a little apple pie with apples around.
Argh! Someone here did one a few years back that was two tier with either fondant or choc. transfers of kitchen accessories on it. It looked kind of retro and had a stand mixer, whisk, etc. I cannot for the life of me, find it or remember who it was!
