So, my mom just asked me to make a cake for this weekend for a small get together. Of course I couldn't say no!

It's a friends birthday and they all love martini's and glitzy things. I don't think I want to pipe a martini glass on the cake. Any other suggestions? Possibly sparkely?? All I can do at this point is buttercream...I'm still learning, so fondant is out.

Any suggestions? I'm drawing a blank!! This cake has to WOW them all.

thanks all!

Bake an oval cake and then ice it to look like a giant olive.

Here's a cake I did with a martini theme. It is buttercream with fondant dots, but you could do them in bc, and the martini glasses are cookies. It was really easy.

Bake hand cut martini glasses. Put those extra long toothpicks into them before baking (or sucker sticks) so you can stand them up on top of the cake......hey, make that olive cake w/the cookie glasses.

That would be cool, especially if you threw some gin into the cake batter and/or b/c. icon_lol.gif

Some inspiration from the cake galleries:

And for sparkly, here's a very informative thread on the different dusts:

Go to the galleries and then to the search tab, type in martini glass. There are some really cute ideas and not all of them are done in fondant. I'm sure you'll come up with something. Don't forget to post it when you're done!!
