My best friend's son is getting married and she asked me to make a cake for the rehearsal dinner. Can anybody please give me some ideas?!
I don't know your decorating experience but maybe a nice simple sheet cake with wedding bells and a message: Best Wishes (name) and (name).
Hope this helps.
I would do a bridal shower cake. Adding the message like sweetbaker said would be nice!
Does the couple have a favorite hobby you can go with like hiking, biking, movies, etc. A mutual interest might be a good place to start for ideas.
I'm really new at cake decorating, but seem to have found a "hidden talent" that I didn't know that I had. I have taken Wilton classes 1 and 2
and really surprised myself. I just kind of "blank out" when it comes to ideas. This web-site has helped me so much (I just discovered it last week). Thank you all so much for your help!!
How about a sheet cake with a bridal gown and tux cut out of fondant. Then a few words of encouragement.
The info/suggestions so far are good.
I've had many brides use the groom's cake at the rehersal dinner.
Have you tried browsing the groom's cake section in the pix section?
considering you will be having a large wedding cake the next day, why not pastry platter or individual cheesecakes, depending on how many folks at the dinner see below for some sample pics:
Thank you everybody for the help!!
