So I've just finished the strangest cake request I've had so far. A cake in the shape of a bottle of face cream!
The husband of the birthday girl called me and asked if I do carved cakes. I explained that I haven't been doing this long but that I would happily give it a go. He then emailed me a copy of the invitation for the party which was a spoof face cream ad with his wife's baby photo as the "before" and her at 40 as the "after" with the face cream in the middle.

So, I did it and I'm wondering what's the strangest cake you've ever done?

Oh and here's the link

Not the weirdest, but maybe the most random...I did a lightbulb for an electrician once. The bride couldn't figure out what to do for a groom's cake for him, so she went with that!

Your cake turned out great!

I just had someone ask for a group birthday cake that had to include a 6 yr old who loves cheerleading, an 11 yr old soccer player and their grandpa who loves chocolate. Not odd but hard to tie together into one cake!

Have you seen my pile of poo cake? LOL That has to be the strangest one I've ever been asked to do. I've actually done 2 of those. One of the guests at the first poo cake party called 6 months later "having to have a pile of poop" for her daughter's birthday. icon_lol.gif Whatever. They were actually quite easy to make and they paid for them so it's all good on my end.

Yes, a pile of poo. I did one for a boy having a Fear Factor party. It looked so gross that I didn't dare put it on my website

I guess one of my weirdest was the top part of a pair of jeans with a credit card stuck in the butt (its in my photos)....some kind of "swiper" game/joke the customer played with their friends all the time. She was kinda embarrassed even placing her order. haha.
