So my parents are re-opening their restaurant next tuesday (dec. 1st), and I was asked to make the cake for the event. This cake would be for the symbolism, so its only really feeding about 15 people. Regardless, it is a California grill named Calistoga Grill. Calistoga is a wine region in California, so the best idea I could come up with for the cake is a wine bottle. I could do that but I tend to prefer to do more fun and cute cakes. Does anyone have any ideas that they think would be suitable, they are trying to make it a wine restaurant, but they also have awesome bands in every week, so music is a big part.

Please, if anyone has any ideas, feel free to throw them this way, I don't really feel like making a wine bottle.

thanks a lot!

How about a replica of one of their dining tables. You could make mini plates, napkins, wine glasses etc and add to the table. This works if they have a unique or specific table cloth or color sheme. You'd make a square cake (at least 2-3 layers high) and then use fondant for the table cloth and details.

Alternatively how about a relica of their 'sign' - assuming they have a sign outise the place icon_smile.gif This can be done in buttercream or fondant

How about a grill with the logo of the restaurant on the side and a little GP bottle of wine on top
