Hi Everyone,
I could use all of your brilliant minds for a cake idea!
I have an order for a graduation cake to serve 200. They want the school logo, fishing, swimming,wrestling and football all incorporated in the design!
I'm planning on making three tiers whether they be stacked or attached side by side I haven't decided.
Does any one have any ideas on how to have all of these themes and not have it look like everything is thrown together with no connection?
I'm stumped and would appreciate any of your ideas!
Thank You

Tricky. Maybe one of the cakes could be a water cake, with fish on the sides. Then you could make two kinds of figurines: divers and fishermen, both standing on the edge of the cake. A second cake could be a football field, with the school's logo in the inzone. The third cake could be wrestling.

I'm really not sure how this would work, but maybe you could make "bleachers" between all of the cakes, kind of tying them together.

How about a football player wrestling a fish underwater?? JUST KIDDING.

I like the structure of this cake that I saw yesterday:

Maybe you could do the school logo on the top square and then the activities on the others?

Good luck!
