I need some ideas as what to use for this project. The client wants a pumkin and a carriage. It has to be able to hold the pumkin which I was planning to make out of cake. I'm stuck on the carriage part. I thought about wood but I would need a saw to cut the pieces. Help anyone???

Sugarcheryl,
I hope I'm understanding this right. You need a carriage cake base in which you will place a pumpkin shaped cake?

I would cut a piece of wood to the size you wish, then cut 4 disc of wood and if maybe you can get someone to cut a design into it, you will also need 2 dowels to connect the wheels in the front & back.

I don't know what your budget it like, but you might also find some ornamental wheels already diecut. There are also carriage cake bases that can be rented.

I am attaching a pic of mine maybe it will help you, you basically need the bottom of the cake base.

I didn't think so, will this one work? The actual base is only 7 inches total length is 22 inches and it was created for a centerpiece

Try googling or searching on this site for Debbie Brown Cinderella carriage or coach cake. You might get some ideas from that.

Okay again thanks and auntginn I like the smaller one that would work is that made out of wood?

I got it I went and google debbie brown and saw a picture of what some did in one of her classes and gave me an idea. I'm going to use pastillage to make the carriage. Thanks projectqueen and auntginn for the help.
