Hey all,

I'm planning an anniversary party for my parents in the 20's/swing theme. I dont know what area in the galleries to find some thing like that, but if you have done a cake like that, plz post a pic, or if u have any suggestions on how to decorate in that theme, plz share. Also I'm not doing any poker stuff in there, so not that stuff. Thanks for your help!! icon_biggrin.gif

I have an idea! The 20's are often referred to as the "roaring 20's". I think this cake could be all about costume! If you make 2 or more tiers you could make one tier a Man's fedora hat and the second tier somehow in a flapper dress style.(I thought making the fringe) You could include feathers, BEADS, and boa's!! I see this cake as being fabulous! Here are a few examples of the fedora hat:

and a flapper dress:

Now go crazy! This cake sounds like fun!!!

That sounds great! I'd love to see it. I was thinking, too, of adding a pocketwatch, maybe lying on the board. Good luck!!! Post a pic of it when you're done.

In the 1920's Flappers with bobbed hair wores cloches and danced the Charleston in beaded dresses. The smoked cigarettes in long cigarette holders and drank "bathtub gin" from teacups at a Speakeasy...
