entering a contest and there is no theme. the contest is just a decorated cake. sounds good right? but theres absolutely no direction. i could make a topsy turvy, wedding, baby, birhtday who knows.

I actually think it makes for a more difficult competition

i dont want to do fondant, but could maybe do characters etc if i need to

so, throw me some themes.

what are the popular kids party themes now?
what else?

Yeah, I can see that no theme would be tough...as far as kids' themes go: I have pre-schoolers and Thomas the train is ever popular. My daughter is also really into Dora, so that is another one. My son is into Cars and starting to get interested in superheros like Spiderman. Then there's always the old (and new) standby "Sesame street" with characters like Abby Cadabby, Elmo etc...Not sure what the older kids are into now, so I can't help there.

What about a winter theme, being it's winter. Or a tropical theme, as most of us would like to leave winter and go to a tropical place. Hey, you could do a tiered cake that transitions from winter to tropical. Just brainstorming, but that could be fun and unique.

Please post when you're done - would love to see it! icon_smile.gif

Are there other categories in the contest that do have themes? If so, would 'decorated cake' mean a cake without a theme, such as one that just has colors & piping, stripes, dots, flowers?

If it's just open, then, is there something you have been wanting to make? What about your favorite theme?

Have fun & good luck in the contest!
