I was asked to do a Southwest/TexMex engagement cake. So far the only idea presented is a sombrero cake. Any other unique ideas would be great.
Big chili pepper or jalepeno (or bunch of them)
burrito/taco/chili/salsa or other tex-mex food as cake
burro or longhorn
area wildlife like birds, snake, toads etc.
map of the area the couple are from
What about a Margarita cake or even a Tequilla Sunrise cake? I mean (in the shape of the glass and a sunrise)
Gets me thinking now......
Thanks guys! Some great ideas. I do want to ask, if I go with the Sombrero cake what would the best approach be as far as the brim? I need to feed about 60 or so people but want to maintain the closest look of the hat.
how about a cake in the shape of Texas
How about a cake with the Kokopelli symbol or even a silhoutte of a howling coyote and some cactus around a round cake with an airbrushed sunset behind it...
How about the black Mariachi hat w. siler piping for the designs on the hat. Or maybe the red hat. Cowboy boots and big belt buckles also come to mind. Go to a San Antonio website for more ideas.
How about a ghost town? A few cacti, ith some rocks, sand in the desert, and a steer head skeleton, some hot sugar tumbleweeds. The cake can be the empty buildings, spider webs off the wood railings, window shutters hanging half off the frame, you know, that kind of spooky stuff.
In order to get it to stay some what proportional, My guess would be to put it on a sheet cake to help with the look and the svgs things.
