I did a search in the gallery and didn't really find anything I'd like to use... does anyone have an idea for a cake for a bounce house party? It is for a 4 yr old boy. TIA!!!!

Can you elaborate what a bounce house party is? Are you referring to the inflatable structures that kids bounce around in?

I did one for my DD's past bday. It wasn't my best work as I had two other cakes that weekend, but the kids loved it.

The pics is too big to attach...any ideas on minimizing it?

I think that you should definitely bake a bounce house out of the cake. You can use a 2 layer sheet cake for the bottom and make the "poles" and sides out of gumpaste or fondant. I have wanted to make a cake like that for a while now, but have had no reason. GOOD LUCK and post a pic when you do it.

Yes, I agree with making the 3D bounce house. I was asked to draw a bounce house & a kid jumping out of it, on sheet cake, and I didn't like how it turned-out. Do they have a bounce-house theme? (some of them are clowns, or trains, etc...), maybe that can help you with alternate ideas...

Reducing pictures (aandsmommy): I open my pic in Microsoft Photo Editor & in the "Image" drop-down menu there is a "resize" option. Hopefully you have that or a similar program? Otherwise I am clueless!

Thanks for the tip...let's see if this works. Ok, they looks a little stretched out, but you get the idea. I used my edible image printer to do the kids jumping on the sides.
