Hi all,
I have been asked to make a cake for a toga party sponsored by my university that will be throwing a party for all of the new incoming students. It'll be my first paid cake! icon_smile.gif (I mainly do cakes for family and friends) Anyways, I cannot for the life of me decide what kind of cake to make. Anybody have any ideas? It should feed about 75.
Thanks for any help!

How about an Acropolis cake? A big rectangular cake with columns around the outside (gumpaste) and triangular toppers at the ends shaped like Greek or Roman building facades?

Same kind of idea, only I chose the Roman Temple of Portunus. Togas were a worn by Ancient Roman men, their form of a business suit.

Search Toga Party and you will get several other ideas- Including Earlene's doric column caKe.

I'm thinking of the half wreath of ivy they wore on their heads. Maybe that can be on top of the column/building cake.

Thanks for everyone's help! I've been researching like crazy and I came up with the following two ideas.
The Colosseum http://www.artcake.ru/cakes.htm/b958/
The Pantheon http://z.about.com/d/atheism/1/0/f/f/PantheonRomeModel.jpg

Neither looks very easy and I'm afraid I might be biting off more than I can chew (esp. with the Colosseum!) Does anyone have any suggestions/advice on which I should pick and how I should go about doing it?
