I need everyone to put their thinking caps on for this one. I've an order for a bday cake for 16 and 18 y.o. girls who are sharing a party. The theme is Western/Dukes meets Cinderella, and they've ordered cowboy hats with tiara detail on them. They like the Sweet 16 cake I did with hot pink and zebra stripes but are trying to combine the Dukes thing with it.
Any ideas? I swear I can smell the wood burning, so someone out there has an idea forming already!
I thnk I would make eachof them thier own smaller cake. I have had twins several times when I did 2 10" square cakes. I think blending these 2 themes is going to end up on Cake Wrecks.
Do you think you could copy the cowboy hat with tiarra detail for the cake?
This could be an incredibly fun cake to do!! I picture Cinderella hanging out of the General Lee! You could do it with a carved cake and a Cinderella pick.
Way out in left field, I know, but wouldn't that be cool?!
How about Cinderella in her pumpkin carriage that is painted up like the General Lee!! lol.
I was also going to suggest Cinderella in the General Lee, but I love the pumpkin-painted-like-the-Gen'l-Lee, too!
I don't have any ideas, but HAD to check out this thread because the title made me laugh.
A General Lee Pumpkin sounds hilarious!
LOL...too cute! A General Lee Pumpkin.....with Cinderella doin' the hood slide in her gown...oh wait...a pumpkin wouldn't have a hood to slide across, would it?
If they just want a stacked cake, how about doing the bottom layer orange with 01 on it like the Gen. Lee with a pillow on top and a glass slipper on top of the pillow?
You could make the cake like the steps going up to the castle and have Cinderella going up the steps...and at the top have one of the Dukes waiting for her.
lol How bout Cinderella w/a cowboyhat & in light blue daisy dukes standing in front of the general lee or sitting on it doing her daisy pose holding the tierra in her hand like she did an exchange for the cowboy hat... hmmm...maybe.....just a thought
or Cinderella driving a large slipper looking like general lee w/ her hand up in the air w/the cowboy hat or throwing out her bottom part of her dress.... and for bottom tier would be the clock face....IDK just sounds fun throwing some ideas out there.
Do Cinderella in her pumpkin, but instead of horses, have it be pulled by the General Lee... Perhaps with a distraught/surprised expression on her face... Two cakes, only attatched by the "reins"...
WOW! You guys are rockin' with awesome ideas! For some reason, I didn't get any notification that responses were posted...
What a hoot! Thank you so much for the advice, and giving me a chuckle at the visuals in my head!
I too was thinking of the carriage painted like the General Lee. Maybe Cinderella wearing a cowboyhat & holding a tiara or vice versa, or wearing a cowboy hat w/ a tiara wrapped around it. In a ball gown w/ some good ole' cowboy boots
If you're wanting a tiered cake. One orange w/ the 01, another white w/ the quilted impression mat & pearls. The top could be cake or gumpaste, a cowboy hat w/ a RI tiara leaning against it.
