I'm just fishing for some great ideas for an 80th birthday cake for my grandmother! I'm making her cake, and footing most of the bill under my business account, and I want to really WOW her! She loves to paint, fish, hunt and loves flowers and berry picking... It's a wide range of likes!
My parents are having a huge party for her at her retirement home and figured they would need about 150 servings of cake!
I'd just like to see pictures or suggestions on what you would do! Try to spark my creative juices and all that!!
i just uploaded this http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&
file=displayimage&pid=1314716&done=1 which was my grandmas cake. you could do a teird version like this one http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=839353
you could change the flowers to something that comes with berries.
i have seen 3d fish jumping out of water which are cool, very impressive.
or something tierd sheet cake style, a river running round the the bottom tier, a grassy field with hunting animals, and her done up in hunting gear?
Here's one I made. It was for a man but color change and the addition of her special interests would completely change it for you.
Ok. My brain is screwy. But you could make a figure of her painting a landscape (of flowers and berries) with maybe a stream and deer nearby. And tongue in cheek have a gun near her feet. LOL Told you my brain is screwy!
Thanks for the suggestions thus far! I am leaning towards a tiered cake as I think she would love that and it would be good for my portfolio and practice since I have my first wedding cake in July... She does like the finer things in life so I'm not sure if I want to go with fish and whatnot on her cake, likely flowers or something... Just not sure what that something is yet!!
brincess, lovely cake! I wonder how the decorator got the "poles" (for lack of a better word) so perfect along the sides!
thank you i think extreme patience - and i imagine a clay extruder!
What about this? With her favorite colors and flowers?
That's a beautiful cake!! I really like that one as I can tailor it to her likes without incorporating her fishing and hunting hobbies. LOL!
