Has anyone ever done a monopoly cake. I have a request for one but want to try it out before I accept the order. Plus not sure how detailed I should get. Should I make edible money etc.....Any ideas are appreciated!

Do they want the playing board? Or do they want a Monopoly themed cake? With the themed cake you could make a 2-3 tiered cake and then place Chance/Community Chest cards, money, playing pieces, and properties around the tiers.

For the playing board, would they want the whole set up? or would a section suffice (just doing the boardwalk/park place section or another color section). You could decorate the colored section with houses/hotels and one or two different player pieces. Maybe have some money drifting down the sides and some dice lying on top also.

if they want the whole board-wow! that's going to be detailed! I can't even imagine how long that would take you-if that's the case, definately price higher for the amount of detail/time involved.

maybe someone else will have some tips/ideas for you- good luck! icon_smile.gif

Hi,

Here you are photos of monopoly cakes. You can use BC o edible image. Personally, I would try to do the last one.

I can't wait for your cake!!!

Thanks for the ideas. She does want a monopoly board cake. Unfortunately I don't have an edible image machine, so I will have to try to do free hand or a trace technique. I'm just a little intimidated by all the detail. I do like the one from pattycake so I think that is the one I will try.....
