I've been asked to do a wizard of oz cake. I've looked around the internet for some ideas but really haven't seen anything i like. Does anyone have any ideas? Have you done one before?

I have one in my photos if you want to take a look, it's pretty much the emerald city and dorothy's shoes with the yellow brick road..HTH

either a sheet cake or a tiered cake, it doesn't matter. I really like the cakes with the slippers carved from cake but i have NO IDEA how to do that!!!!!! I have my first carved cake to do this week, but its pretty simple.

I have one in my photos if you want to take a look. Pretty simple - round cake, fondant yellow brick road, chocolate transfer rainbow, buttercream poppies - although the mom did supply the figures...

At least maybe it'll give you an idea.

I did a Glinda cake with a yellow brick road on cupcakes, not the best but it's an idea you can build on!

Good Luck.

ok lets see.

for tiered you could do a yellow brick road going up from the bottom to the second tier.
then for the top tier you could have it be emerald city. for a topper, if you want one, you could do either a throne or dorothys shoes. for borders around each tier, you could do fondant flowers and on the bottom tier, where the road starts, you could have the flowers continue up the sides of it. does that make any sense at all? i'm not too good at explaining things. icon_redface.gif
or you could do a border with the grass tip around each tier.

for a sheet cake you could adapt that idea.

I thought this one came out really nice as a sheet cake.
