Yes...you read correctly! My son's Kindergarten class is having a full blown wedding for the letters Q & U as part of a reading segment. (Here is some info if you're interested:http://www.reallygoodstuff.com/pdfs/155539.pdf)
I volunteered to make the wedding cake (9-6-3 round, stacked) and am stumped for ideas. Here is what I have so far but open to all suggestions:
*fondant Q & U toppers, with a veil and bowtie, similar to the ones on the
*small fondant q & u's on the cake
*a few "qu" words around the sides of the cake in white
Anyone else have any creative, Kindergarten-type ideas??
that sounds pretty good to me! have they done anything on colours? then maybe you could use those ones.
how about q and u travelling in planes, boats, trains - i guess thats handy if they have done any transport recently!
or, are they old enough to be playing junior scrabble? you could always switch to that for showing the words.
I saw one a long time ago on this site and haven't been able to find it since. I think I would just put a ribbon on the bottom of each tier and put the words all over the cake using the same color as the ribbon. The toppers that you mentioned sound cute.
I used to teach school, so I'm familiar with this stuff. Although, at the time, I wasn't making cakes, so I didn't get the chance to do something really cool like this!
I love the ideas of the Q & U in a veil and bow tie. Have you though about adding little fondant things around the sides, like a quilt, umbrella, etc??
How fun! Please post a picture when you finish it. Good luck.
Thanks for the great ideas everyone! I just ran into his teacher today and she said the wedding won't be until April, but I will post a photo when I'm done.
