I've been commissioned to do a yin yang cake in black and white for twins by saturday. They didn't want it "plain and boring" and I'm pretty stuck on what to do to jazz it up a little bit. Please help me!!

Thanks KJewel

You could do the yin and yang separately (each carve or use special pan) in two different colors:


Here's an example of the pan:

That pan's cool. Wish I had that when I did this one for my daughter. It was for her and her friend who are total opposites. The cake seemed to fit them well. I like the flowers for the dots, but not sure if your twins are girls or not. Good luck!

LeckieAnne, I was going to add that cake, but didn't for the same reason you mentioned.

Beautiful cake, you did a great job. icon_smile.gif

I googled Yin Yang and found this artist on flicker who has an amazing series of Yin Yang pieces.

Thanks guys! I think I'm going to go with the two cakes that fit together and I love the flowers as the circles inside the yin yang! I think I'm going to do the flowers in red (its for 20 year old twin girls) Thanks again you guys really helped! I'll post the picture! Wish me luck icon_smile.gif
