Is the sheet cake going to be the wedding cake, or is it a gooms cake or something like it? If she is absolutly set on asheer cakt then I would do the whole lake with fishermen/people figures fishing and a lake scene. If she is not absolutly sold on the sheet cake then I think I would carve a fishing basket with a fishing poll, hooks, luers (sp?), and fish coming out of it. Hope that helps

Yes, she is sold on the Sheet Cake idea . This will be the Wedding Cake . As I know it ...This is both their Second Marriage so she doesn't want anything too extravagent . Plus she's on a very tight budget .

How about a lake scene with a little row boat in it with the couple in the boat facing each other leaning in for a kiss with wedding attire on and holding fishing poles.

I am making a groom's cake. They want a sheet cake with the water and a man fishing. In the middle of the cake, they want a fondant fish jumpling
up half out of the water.

maybe fish in wedding clothes (tie, top hat, veil) with "We're hooked" and their names and date on the cake? I have a fishing theme cake in my photos.

I am doing a wedding cake for next weekend, and we went with sheet cakes for the guests, and I'm doing a VERY simple dummy tier cake with a 6"cutting cake on the top for display. I don't know who is going to be cutting the sheet cake, so in order for every piece to look "decorated", and so they know where to cut the pieces, I am putting a little 1 inch chocolate pine tree on each piece (NOT a 3-d tree!!!). I am using the Wilton melts, green, melt them in a piping bag, cut a tiny bit off the end, and I have a template that I followed. I knocked off about 24 of them in less than 5 minutes, including the melting time. SUPER easy. PM me if you are interested.
