Okay I am supposed to make a cake for a 94 year old man that loves cows and a 48 year old woman (his granddaughter) who loves shopping....I have to combine those two themes on one cake!

any good ideas??
THanks!!

Maybe the base of the cake can be cow-print, and then you can have shopping bags-hat/shoe boxes decorated on top?

Cows and shopping hmmmm


Ok how about a Cow (on to legs ) carrying in both hoofs a slew of shopping bags... you could also put a cell phone in one hand and sunglasses on the cow.

Or you could do a shopping bag (large one) and the pattern on the bag could be the black and whit cow print.

HTH

Designer cows. Hats, high heels, fancy dresses, looking into a mirror. Sort of like when you are in a fancy dressing room . Or have them walking down a runway.

You could always use the chick-fil-a cows for inspiration.. They are always up to no good.. icon_biggrin.gif
