I think it would be cute to make it look like a used car lot with a little sales "shack" and flag banners hanging from the shack to telephone poles or something. A dirt lot with grass around the edges, maybe even a couple of potholes in the lot with a few cars around. You could put a sign on the door to the shack that says "Closed for ?'s Birthday".

Do you have the 3-D cruiser? Why not put it on top of a sheet cake? A little extra more work, but with it being so fantastic, you might be able to get another job out of it.

you didn't offended me at all sweetcreations!!! And I don't think you did anyone else either.

we all have different thoughts, ideas, opinions.. icon_smile.gif
I personally like to hear everyone's ideas. It always helps me to decide.

Hopefully it will help pinknlee to decide on what she wants to do.

Why not just combine the two? Have the car sitting on a used car lot?

I love the idea of putting a lemon somewhere! That would be funny.
