After doing my preschool graduation cake last week, I got 4 orders today but I'm stumped on one of the requests so can you guys give me some ideas on what to do????

The theme is Hamsters.

I know I could do a BTC or I could try to make one out of fondant but not sure how to quite make that.

So please, if anyone has any suggestions I certainly would welcome them.

wow this is a hard one!!!!!! i thought at first about making that abll thing they run around in but not sure how to make it look like it. obviously using the sports ball pan but as far as decorating it im lost. Sorry this probably isnt much help. will keep thinking

I don't remember who did the cake, but in the gallery there is a cake called cesspool. I know this sounds bad, but stay with me. On that cake the decorator made some mice out of clay (I think). Maybe you could do the same just make them look like hamsters. You would definitely have to put in the hamster's wheel. icon_smile.gif But I think that it would be cute.

Good Luck!!!

Just a thought but what about something like susanmm23 said.. but not just the ball but the trails, cage etc... not necessarily 3d but it was a thought

Hamsters is a fun subject..... easy too. Cover the top of the cake with chocolate shavings colored to look like wood shavings, and then make a couple of fondant ball type things in hamster colors and place then under the shavings. You might even want to make one with a hamsterish face sticking up out of the shavings.

This is a hard one!!! I was thinking the wheel too.

This is the only hamster cake I could find online...

Maybe search out Hamster clip art or something for a BCT idea

Toughie!

Oh my gosh you guys have come up with some great ideas that I never thought of (duh). If you get more, please keep them coming it will most certainly help me as I thought this is going to be a toughy.
