I am just not clever enough!
I want to make a cake for the nurses that took cake of my dad after back surgery.
Even though it was back surgery, it is a orthopedic floor so it doesn't have to be a spine.
I saw a couple beautiful cakes with hand molded bones on this site, but I don't have that kinda time right now!
I'd prefer a simple sheet cake - but can to a 2 tier if need be.
It may sound weird,but you could just use white icing to pipe a little skeleton on the cake (that's bones for ya).
You could maybe pipe a little nurse with a hat on and a few surgical instruments also,i.e. scalpel, syringe. You could make a bed with the skeleton sitting in it too with maybe an IV bag.
Piping a simple box with bones behind it would kind of look like an x-ray machine too. For instance, just have the neck down to hips behind the x-ray screen and a little head popping over the top and feet/legs sticking out from the bottom. The bones would be shown in the x-ray box.
I have a weird sense of humor, so you may not like the ideas. It's just what came to my mind first.
Some party stores have year-round holiday supplies. You could probably find a small skeleton to place on the cake.
I love weird humor!
I'm doing the x-ray box thing - good idea
Thanks for the help,
You are very welcome.
I was actually thinking about your cake last night and I thought the little x-ray machine would be the simplest thing to do.
I just made a cake yesterday and my back felt broken when I finished. Bending over icing those things does make you sore sometimes.
Well, I hope your cake turns out great. I'm sure the nurses will appreciate it.
