i have an order for a mr t cake and i am struggling to think up a design. i toyed with the idea of a 3d bust but not sure i have the time to do it, i also toyed with the idea of a 2d cake but im having doubts about how realistic he will look and whether he would look silly (also applies to the 3d really) not sure what to do!
only brief i have is its going to a fancy dress birthday party in which the guy whos birthday it is will be dressed as mr t....needs roughly 30 slices....not much of a brief lol.
i love cakes where u can do whatever u like but sometimes it frustrates me lol.
only think im almost set on is having on there somewhere 'i pity the fool who came dressed as me' though that may change too lol
i would really appreciate any inspiration!
thanks in advance!

Yikes, that's a tough one. Not a lot of help to give you but when someone says Mr T I instantly think of the thick gold chains he wears, maybe you can incorporate that into the design

The first thing I thought of was the shirt with the sleeves cut off (maybe do a 2-D carved sheetcake in the shape of the shirt?) with the big thick gold chains hanging down........Are you wanting to do his face??

maybe an fbct on a sheet cake?

ah i never even thought about the sleeveless shirt!

that was my dilema, to do his face or not, i dont want it to wind up not looking like him and i think with a face you always run that risk!

i think the gold chains have got to be on there cus they are his trademark really!

thats for the help guys! i feel more inspired now icon_smile.gif
