I'm making a cake for my bank next week. I can make whatever I want, but I decided I'd like to do a fall/Thanksgiving theme. Now, I'm stuck on ideas! I have so many, that I don't know what to go with! I'd love to try something with the piroutte cookies, but don't know if that would be "fallish" enough. I also want to make something that will stand out & have people think "wow, that's different!". I was thinking of doing a chocolate trasfer or using cigarillos, but I won't be able to get those in time, as the cake I'm doing is due next week. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Do the piroutte cookie cake, but make a bunch of fondant/gumpaste fall leaves and turn it into a basket of leaves icon_smile.gif

Iknow what you mean about having so many ideas you don't know which way to turnicon_smile.gif BTDT icon_smile.gif

I'd go for a simple 3-d.......use the doll skirt to make a turkey.

I like the tall cakes that have a spot hollowed out so you can place a tea light in it and it looks like a giant pillar candle with some leaves around the base. There are lots of pictures of this kind of cake in the gallery.

I like the candle idea and you can get votives now for like $1.50 that are battery powered! I did that for my friend's birthday last year and she loved it!

SweetResults, I love your idea of the pirouette cookies to look like a basket with leaves. I 'll have to try it!

I am very new at this. How do you put the pirouettes on the side of the cake. Help!
