I have been asked to donate a cake for a fundraiser for a local childrens abuse sheltar. They told me I could make any cake I want to and that was it. I am at a loss. I am currently working on a roasted pig cake for a luau and an groom's cake in the shape of an otter, i only have animals on my brain. Help!! I need ideas!!!!!
How about something classic like "The Wizard of Oz"
You could even do something simple but still fun like Teddy Bears or Rubber Ducks?
Have you seen the storybook cake here by dods? It's GORgeous and you could put any story you wanted.
It depends on how big/fancy/beautiful you want to go
Interested in doing a tiered cake? sheet? several small(er) rounds?
Give us some idea where to go w/this And how long before this needs to be done?
The cake is for April 25th. The Charity did not state what type of cake they wanted, they just want a donation for their fundraise, i do not want to do a simple sheetcake, the fundreaiser is at a 5 star hotel. I also do not want it to look like a wedding cake. It needs to be light hearted due to the nature of the charity. Any ideas are greatly apreciated.
If it is at a 5 star hotel it could be alot of future business. I would do an amazing carved cake to really wow everyone. A dog or a Teddy Bear, something that represents confort to a child. Just a thought, good luck!
It's nice to be given creative license! Perhaps, though, you could call back the event coordinator for the charity or the coordinator at the hotel, and ask if there is a theme or slogan for the event. You know, like "Wish Upon A Star" or something like that. The fundraisers I've attended often (but not always) have a core concept that drives the decor, the speeches, that kind of thing.
A bedtime story, a tale of happiness that sends a child drifting off to dreamland? "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown is a popular book that's been around for decades. A baby bunny says goodnight to all the things that bring him comfort in his room. So, for instance, a tiered cake could have many of these items from the book in fondant around the cake, or simply iced in BC. The top tier could have a sleepy bunny in his bed with a beautiful moon wired into the tier so it looks suspended above him. Just a thought...
I can't wait to find out what you end up doing! Please be sure to post pics, if you can!
Would something like this work? You could make it bigger.
Or totally different approach:
Hoope that gives you a few ideas to run with.
