I got an order for a sheet cake with this design on it. I used an EI since it was so complex and I had no idea how to do it otherwise. The message was ordered by the bride.....she's a Cake Wrecks fan.

Anywho...I'm going to hand paint the wording silver, but have NO CLUE what else to do with this thing. I mean I'm having brain lock. Somebody please help??? icon_cry.gif

How about hearts and paisleys in the shite spaces on the edges?

What about a few Wrecktastic carrots in the corners and then a border to finish it off. Add a few sprinkles to go with it.

How about making it look like an opened scroll. You could airbrush the scroll rods on both sides picture. If you dont airbrush, you could just pipe them on.

I think a border would look good... maybe a large border??

Maybe do some 3-D items that sort of artistically wrap around the sides of the cake. A classic spray of roses is one example, but who says they have to be roses? Some more Pokemon characters and one sliding off the side of the cake? Fondant or gumpaste?

If they like chocolate, you could go with the mini hot dog riding poo waves instead of the naked mohawk baby carrot jockeys. I guess having babies on your "weeding" cake could send another message altogether .... but then that could be two wrecks in one! icon_wink.gif

Here is the finished product, thanks for your suggestions.

I decided to go with sprinkles on top and carrots on the sides. I figure if she's a wreck fan, she'll get it.

Her MIL ordered the cake, so I hope she gets it, as I have to work with her.
