i have a cake for a party in july with a mad scientist theme. i googled and googled and all the cakes i found were pretty much all the same sheet cake with a scientist head and gloves. i am just not into doing that but can't come up with any other idea icon_sad.gif

cake like a beaker --- some odd creature in it...cartoon word balloon -- "DADDY!"

----

a cake that looks like a big pile of ashes. "It's DEAD! Oops, Dr. Frankenstein did not take into account the true power of lighting."

----

cake that looks part human & part bug (as in The Fly!) --- "See what happens when you forget to spray for bugs before teleporting!"

----

Two headed anything -- "First Head: Well, at least I'll always have someone to talk to! Second Head: "Shut up! I'm not talking to you!" or each looking at the other: "Dad always liked you best!"

On the same theme fill the beakers with a Mountain Dew mixed piping gel , black lights turn it Lime green in the dark.

A package cake like a shipping carton with one corner broken out and a tentacle a slipped out.

thanks for the ideas. and to the last one. i think that cake looks great but i am trying to stear away from that general idea of the head and beakers on a rectangle. the lady actually picked on like that with a dexter head, but i was hoping to come up with something else first and change her mind icon_smile.gif i'm not very good at being original, i usually just copy someone else, lol. i did see a scientist done with the teddy bear pan and i thought of doing that and putting him on a stack of books, but she didn't sound into it.

Maybe some chemical and math formulas, atoms, E = mc 2, etc. I put these things on a recent cake. Look at the additional picture on this one.

As soon as I read the title of your post I pictured a cake that looked like a big vat with fog/steam pouring out of it, and a fondant figure of a "mad scientist" leaning up against it. I would use dry ice to create the fog effect.

that might work. i'm not really sure what a vat would look like though. you mean like a cauldron type thing?

Yeah, a large cauldron, I was picturing it kind of metallic, like a steel look.

I love this idea, maybe you could adapt it a little.

oh that's cute icon_smile.gif thanks. i saw one similiar to that but that one is really well done. would it be possible to cover the little guy in fondant instead of piped icing? and i was wondering if i could make him into a dexter. she seems to like dexter's lab

you guys are awesome! i really liked that last one. not sure if i could pull off the figurines though but it sure would be fun to try icon_smile.gif i tried all last night to make a spider man and it was NOT working.

i should probably post this in another thread but i was wondering if i should start making the little figures out of marzipan. does it taste any better? i have never tried it but for some reason i was thinking it did.
