I posted this in cake decorating. I meant to post it here so am reposting.

We are doing a cake contest just for fun at a bakery where my sister works and I help out at times and I need some ideas. One of the people that is doing it has 40 yrs plus experince! I have about 5. lol Also my sister is doing it and I have to beat her!!!! Any ideas would be great. We are having partners and start tomorrow. We just want something to blow them out of the water. We are going to have voting on the bakery website for all the cakes when we finish them. So any ideas for me? We start today and have until wend to work on them. They are going to be stryofoam so we can use them as displays later as well. There is no theme.

Do you want to do a molded/3D cake or just a regular tiered one?

I'd probably stick with something you are comfortable with and go all out (using gold and luster dusts, etc.).

It's hard since there is no theme.

Wow, that's so wide open. To narrow it down a little try to choose a favorite color or style (like traditional, whimsical, etc.) or something to do with the season (summer, school starting) and also what types of mediums you like to work with and are good at and then maybe repost these ideas. Then it would be easier to help. Otherwise you'll get 100 different opinions from 100 different people. icon_smile.gif

Having no theme makes it hard!

Maybe start thinking about the upcoming season; Autmn, about a little chef in her kitchen baking about something to do w/ your state or town? hmmmm

I think whimisacal always catches peoples eye. Topsey turvey with bold colors. Just make sure you can recreate the structure in real cake, a customer may want your winning cake! icon_biggrin.gif
