Well, I don't have pics b/c I'm not done but I did a 9x13 (double layer) and I'm going to decorate it like the ocean and I carve a boat and I'm putting that on top with little 50/50 fondant sculptures of my DH, my dad, and my uncle to go in the boat.

Perhaps instead of trying to incorporate such diverse ideas (and because it's so last minute, man I feel for you) you can try a design that appeals to dads in general. Or just something classy that reads Happy Fathers Day. I'm sure you can find something in the gallery that might inspire something. I know that if I'm stumped for an idea I always head right to the gallery! Good luck! thumbs_up.gif

I agree...for that many people with such diverse hobbies, a nice chocolate cake with Happy Father's Day written on it would be just right.

Make a sheet cake that looks like a block of wood. On it, set karate figure leaning on a guitar (use wilton guitar pan if u have it). Fade the arm of the guitar (where it slowly transforms) into a dock, going out over a pond, (this would be out over the cake board at this point). Make icing water on the cake board, and put a figure in the water, boating!. send a pic of whatever u decide!

Hey Candoo.. i really like your idea of doing the guitar the slowly transitions into a dock..however how would you do this? I wanted to use fondant and i dont have an airbrusher?? How would I get the transition look without an airbrush?
TIA!

I don't have an airbrush either. If your using fondant (or BC either for that matter), I would just paint the fondant using coloring gel. Check out the chicken cake in my pics- this is what I done with it.

lol okay so i do not like this cake at all!! but i said i would post a picture of it! they people it was for loved it so i guess that's what counts...i think if i wasnt so tired when i started this cake it might have been better but o well! i think my little figures are bad and the boat isnt smooth but w/e i like the guitar.
