I am in the planning stages for my son's five year birthday - he turns five in October, but he's already decided he wants a Tom and Jerry cake. We will probably be having his party at the local bowling alley, because he loves bowling, so I would like to incorporate bowling as well. Problem? I can't figure out how to put them together to actually make sense.
So . . . if you had to make a Tom and Jerry bowling cake, how would you do it?
have the cake the bowling lane. Make bowling pins and tie Jerry to the first pin and then have Tom in the bowling position like he just bowled a ball- then have a bowling ball headed down the lane to Jerry and the pins.
Or have the same set up, but with Jerry stuck to the front of the ball headed toward the pins.
I think there was a cartoon with them in a bowling alley once.
I think I've figured out what I will do. Modeling the figures would be too advanced for me personally, so I'm going to make the cake like a sheet cake and make it look like the bowling lane. I'm going to make a rice krispie treat bowling ball covered in marbled fondant. I'm planning on making a chocolate transfer of a Tom and Jerry bowling picture (you can find on google) and attach it to gumpaste and stick that in the end of the cake as the backdrop for the pins. I'll probably make some pins out of either gumpaste or white chocolate. Sounds like a lot, but I think it will be cute.
