If you are going for comical I think sculpting Scarlett with the curtains hanging on her would be hilarious. Like the Carol Burnett skit.

You could make a small house out of gumpaste to look like tara or you could make a Rhett and Scarlett out of gumpaste.Also you could make a small set of stairs with Rhett and Scarlett at the bottom HTH

I did a search for Gone With The Wind and found a couple of pictures. I'm not sure how to insert them but there was one that was sqaure with a bow that was decorated like the dress she wore to the BBQ...it might work since it is only for 15 people[/img]

you could do one of the "princess" / doll cakes -- the one that has the cake as the dress and upper body portion as the topper ...

you can dress it up like Scarlet, that way you can choose which ever dress you like best from the movie

the doll idea would be great...the green dress made from the curtains or the red dress worn to ashley's b'day party. either the stand up doll or the barbie shaped pan could be adapted to this.

or you could do a hat - remember the green hat that rhett brought her when she was still in mourning and living in atlanta?

tara would be amazing - esp w/ the columns!

so, can you do my b'day cake??? lol - that is my favorite movie and book!

has she said what flavor? red velvet would be great - play on the name 'scarlett' and the red dress.
