Okay, so I am having a hard time with this one!

I have a cake due in a week and a half, buttercream decorated, and would like a sporty theme (the birthday lady is into volleyball, baseball, biking, and badminton) they'd also like it to be feminine... and she's turning 40! So how the heck do I make a sporty feminine cake that is sophisticated enough for an adult (I'd have an easier time with a young girl who liked all that - make everything pink! Haha!)

Anyway, if anyone has any ideas (and I mean ANY) I'm at a loss!

I did a cake like that a few months ago for a lady turning 40.She loved the beach...and a bikini...loved a few other things so what I did was make a sugar cookie for each thing..a bikini...sunglasses....margarita glass etc and iced them and set them all around the cake which was decorated in a triopical theme.The lady loved it!! I base coated the cake yellow one tier and pink the other and airbrushed the edges to make it look tropical.I added palm trees etc...It worked out great!

Ah fantastic! I had thought about cookie cakes about 2 weeks ago, but completely forgot about it! (new baby = little sleep, and I am a zombie!)
That would be great! Thanks!

I think Sugar Shack has a beautiful soccer tiered cake posted. It is very feminine. You could change it to a volleyball. HTH
