Can you give me any ideas for a New Years cake? It will need to be huge because it will be for a party. Let me know. Thanks!
I think we could help more if you were a little more specific about what you wanted. Exactly how many servings do you need, are you planning to make fondant/gumpaste figures? In the meantime, I think these cakes are really cool!
tiered cake: along the tiers have some sort of decoration spiralingup the cake representing each month until you come to the top and have something for newyears.
idea#2 tiered cake in colour theme of choice with 'streamers , horns noise makers make of sugar paste or fondant . on the top a new years eve ball
idea # 3 tiered cake. along the on top 'balloons' 'champagne bottle' and glasses or a royal icing tiara
idea #4 tierd cake with numbers 1 - 10 on cake at the top a 'clockface' that reads midnight or a hat.
Ok I'm done
Well, I'd need to know the theme of the party or color palette but what about a multi tiered cake, different shapes, with crossed gumpaste champagne glasses a topper with gold and silver streamers trailing down the tiers...middle tier with a plaque that says "Happy New Year 2010" ? Elegant but with a measure of difficulty that will impress the guests!
Let us know what you end up with!
