I am in need of some ideas reguarding a sissor cake. My sister is graduating cosmetology school next week, and i was wanting to make a sissor shaped cake. I think i could figure it out, but am open to any suggestions. Thanks

I think I would do it 2-d so it just lays on top of a sheet cake because scissors are so thin in real life.

Hmm, but you could make it real big and make it all by itself.

Would be cool to make it look like the scissors got dropped on the floor at the foot of the beautician's chair.

Look I didn't get much sleep last night and I am loquacious city and a little whacky.

Y'know what I'd do?? Make it look like the floor at the bottom of the chair after a haircut. Y'know those stands that hold single cakes that have just one center clear column?--If you could find one of the kid's chairs and remove the legs and balance on top of the plate at the top of the column--and just use a piece of plastic as if it was the cape draped over the chair waiting for the cleanup with edible hair all over everything like it had just been cut off. And say something like It's all upward and onward or Things are looking up after all this or something to that effect. From the depths to the heighths?

Ok I'm just brainstorming. But scissors are so thin you'd have to make them real big to get any amount of servings. But just make a big template and carve up a sheet cake to fit on it.

An inscription coud be "You made the cut!" congrats...

Got one more--no two--umm, make it look like they are standing in that glass container full of that purpley blue liquid they (used to) stand their tools in to disenfect everything.

Or sit the scissors on a cake that looks like a folded towel like they are sitting there drying.

Crazy scissor ideas from the sleep deprived to you.

Here is one I did a while back, it is a make over theme, but could be altered for cosmetology:

Here's my scissor for a hair dressers shower

I used a copier to blow up a picture, cut it out of filled sheet cakes, iced, and covered it with fondant.

HTH,

I did this one for my mom who is a cosmetologist. It's not as great as all the talented people on here. I added chocolate buttercream "hair" on the board.

Good Luck!
