I need ideas for a sweet sixteen cake, loves the color pink, tinkerbell, and is a girly girl but doesn't want a babyish cake - any ideas? TIA
Do you have a party invitation that you could draw inspiration from?
They have not selected any invitations yet. The mother wants to see ideas now for the october birthday - about 30 people.
Did you look thru the gallery they have some great pictures... You could either put Sweet 16 cakes in search or Oct bdays and I'm sure you could come up with alot of ideas..
I think I will have to avoid tinkerbell and look at other cakes that are a little more grown up but still feminine. I felt like I was pulling teeth to get this little bit of information to begin with! I was just hoping someone had an idea to incorporate Tink in a more grown up cake!
How large is the cake going to be? How many servings? You could do a stacked cake with each layer a different shade of pink. You could do a pink, black and white leopard print tier, a pink, black and white zebra print tier and a pink and white giraffe print tier (for some reason around this neck o' the woods giraffe rpint is really becoming popular!).
Maybe you can go off of the Tinkerbell colors. I usually think of the bright green, yellow, pink purple, flowers, and lots of glitter.
Ooh that would be cute!
Here is one that if you didn't put the tinkerbells on would be not as childish and is really pretty.
And this is the one the inspiration came from...
Hopefully those will give you some ideas!
Those are totally gorgeous cakes!
Those are all wonderful ideas - I didn't even think about using a Tink color scheme (Don't have kids, and I don't know my 15 and 16 yr old nieces very well since they are in Conn and TX). I will offer all those ideas to Mom. Thanks to everyone, I was going cross-eyed looking through the galleries.
I really like Missdawn's idea of the pink, black, and white color scheme with animal prints. What about making Tinkerbell look more grown up? Maybe wearing sunglasses, a black leather jacket, and carrying a cell phone?
letsgetcaking - if Tink ends up on the cake - she will be plastic - my figure modeling stinks! I need a class in figures. Cute idea though! Welcome to CC. You will never leave - just signing up automatically causes you to become an addict!
TNTFundraiser, I love your cakes, especially the turtle! I know you're right about the addiction. I've already spent hours and hours on this site. I'd better set some limits. ) Good luck with your cake. I'm sure it will look amazing!
