Ihave been nominated to make my aunt and uncles b-day cake this year. They are going to Jamaica before their birtdays so my aunt wants a Jamaica theme cake. I have been to countless sites for ideas but had no luck. Would love some ideas, plz help.

You could do a beach themed cake.

Or how about a cake in the shape of a giant tropical drink? Perhaps a pineapple shaped cake with a straw and drink umbrellas. The cake could even be pina colada flavored! You could use fonadant and do a pineapple type imprint on it.

I am actually doing a wedding cake for a couple that are getting married in Jamaica and having a reception here. We decided on a square cake with tropical flowers and trimed in bamboo. I am making little sea shells and arranging them on the corners. I ran into the same problem with finding inspiration for a Jamaican cake . But I am putting some palm sprays with the colorful tropical flowers and with the bamboo it really has a nice look to it.

I think it would be neat to do the cake in the shape of jamaica (in sand color) and cover the board with 'water'..... put a couple of palm trees with 2 figures lounging beneath it in the sand off centre...
that would be cool, Also, hibiscus is a popular flower of jamaica you could put a couple of them in a corner if you didn't want to use palm trees and the figures....
good luck and post the final pic....I am VERY curious to see whatever you come up with....(I'm a proud jamaican!!)
