The first thing that came to mind was to do one like the cake that has a slice on top. Something like....

Or do it like a messed up lasagna with the noodles, etc. all messed up on top of a sheet cake. I can see it in my mind but I don't know how to describe it.

Or.... like this?

How many servings do they want? Do they want fondant or buttercream? I can envision a sheet cake or square cake shaped like a huge slice of lasagne... buttercream icing, ruffle tip for the noodles, red velvet or light choc. cake crumbs for the meat, and ivory buttercream "spackled" to look like the cheese... raspberry or strawberry filling for the sauce... & tinted white chocolate grated for cheese on top... Just the idea that popped in my head reading the subject...
Pretty much looking like the link

but much tastier & about as bad for the hips!

Okay, so my husband and I brainstormed and this is what we came up with. Thanks for the pics that is what I used for this. My only question is if the flavors will complement each other.

She wants chocolate so it would be layered as listed below:

top layer (red icing and white chocolate shavings)
noodle layer (either fondant ruffles or stiff buttercream ruffles on the side)
cheese layer (chocolate cake with white buttercream on the sides)
meat layer (thin mint crumbles)
noodle layer (either fondant ruffles or stiff buttercream ruffles on the side)
cheese layer (chocolate cake with white buttercream on the sides)
meat layer (thin mint crumbles)
sauce (red buttercream icing on the cake board that spreads outside the sides of the cake)
