What do you know about "him" that could be used to personalize the cake?

Here are minister/priest cakes from the CC galleries:

Well I do know the names of the other parishs' he has wroked at, I know that he does have a personal quote, I know that he has a special bond to Our Lady, I know that he likes to go fishing, and I know this has to be one really big cake! LOL i was thinking of doing the cakebord in extra thick foan core, wrapping it in black fondant, and then adding a short strip of white to show the priests collar, then build the cake up from that. What do you think??

Thanks fo your help!

Are you thinking of making this a sheet cake? A full, 2 layer (24x16x4 - 4 cakes each 12x16x2 - stack the 4 into 2 and shove them together) will give you just under 200 servings. You can then add another round (10" or 12"x4) on top of that to get up to about 235-250 servings.
