I need ideas for 20th anniversary for someone I dont know. they have 2 teenage boys, like camping, and went to university of Michigan. the person ordering the cake wants the college included. and left it open to what I come up with. Dont know if I should do a wedding style cake and focus a little on the camping and u of m. or what ??? help

you didn't mention how many you need it to feed (always important as it affects size of cake and construction)

so...

a really easy way to work all this in, is a "road of life" cake.
examples:
> tier cake style - http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1241279.html

> sheet cake style - http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_30055.html

as you see it starts at some early point in life -- in this case them at UMich and then continues to today -- so easy to fit in jobs, kids, adventures, camping, etc. ending where they are now in life.

if they still live in Michigan can have a little more fun and have two geese driving the car -- they being MichiGANDERS. would also want to work in the ever popular why Michiganders answer when asked about where they live -- lift left hand, point to back of it in approximate location of your home.

tent could have UMich logo, car a UMich bumper sticker if they are that fanatical about their alma mater

OMG!! Doug! I nearly spit orange pop on my computer screen! icon_lol.gif


What about a map of Michigan (either on a cake or AS the cake) with a few places of importance highlighted ... the UofM site, where they live, where they camp. You could use mini-3D structures of the Uni (or the emblem), a house, a tent.

or take it one step further....

the cake looks like the back of a left hand -- and then do as CutiePieCakes-Ontario suggests and do little 3D markers
