Help!!! I have a lady who is getting married at a Rennaissance Fair, and need cake ideas for her bridal cake. The wedding party will be in full period costumes, so the cake has to "fit in" somewhat.

Thanks in advance!

My first thought was a castle cake. Would that work?

She's not too crazy about the castle idea. Thanks for your reply, though!

Camelot! With Arthur and Gwenivere.
Or go back even farther, to the days of dragons and wizards.
Or maybe Robin Hood and Maid Marian.

what about a take on those wedding gown cakes?? You know where the cake is tiered and stacked but the top part looks like the top of the dress and the bottom has folds of fondant......what about doing one of those but with a dress of that period?? That would be pretty cool.

How about something like this, colors would be good and not themed
