My friend's sister just graduated from the Police Academy and I am making a cake for her to congratulate her. My friend is leaving the design up to me (and I wish she hadn't), but wants something with a replica badge, hand cuffs and something else. I would kind of like to do something more than just a cake with those decorations on top. I would like to do a shape or something. I also don't know what that "something else" decoration should be. This cake has me stumped and it's due this week! PLEASE help me come up with an idea!!! Thanks a bunch!

Get the badge and keep enlarging it until it is big enough. Use a paper pattern to cut the shape.
"Something else" could be a night stick? That's about all I can think of.

I think you should make a police hat with the badge and handcuffs out of gumpaste. Then for the cake board make it white with black bars on it to look like a jail bars! I think that would look really cute! And if your ambitious, make a gun or a can of mace or something.

I love the jail bars idea!!!! I was thinking of making a gun, but my friend wasn't really sure she wanted one. I don't know why, maybe I'll check with her again.

Thanks for everyone's help! I finally made the cake and she ended up deciding that she wanted a badge shaped cake. I think it came out pretty good. It is in my photos if anyone wants to look! icon_razz.gif
