I am a Friends freak so for me not to be able to envision this cake and put it on paper is driving me nuts. This is a last minute request for my best friend's husband. (She forgot his birthday, it's wednesday and I am busting my you know what to get this looking good!) I can't seem to find any cakes like that on here, can anyone suggest something or has anyone made something like this? I really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

Oh, if you had more time I'd suggest a Smelly Cat cake, or a chick and a duck, or one shaped like a big cup of coffee from Central Perk. That's all I have for now.

You could do a small 2 tier cake & have Friends "stuff" all around the sides.
Stuff like:'
Central Perk cup or apron
microphone
sandwich (remember when someone ate Ross' sandwich!!!!)
dinosaur bone
calculator (for Chandler)
letters that say "O. MY. GAWD" for Janice
duck & chicken
canoe

Doesn't have to be elaborate, since you're short on time. Maybe just the big Friends logo & one "thing" to represent each character? Sounds fun. Please post pics of the final product!

OOh yes! the chick and the duck!! anyone know what a salmon skin roll looks like (The one with Unagi)? I wish I was good enough to model the porcelain dog of Joey's.!

I agree, I think a big coffee cup with "Central Perk" on it would be cute.

You could do the big orange couch from the coffee house or the ceramic dog from Joey and Chandler's apartment.

I was thinking the couch from the coffee shop too. But then I remembered the closing scene. Where the camera landed on the frame they had around the peep hole in their door. I think the frame with a coffee cup that says Central Perk would be cool. The frame would be super easy to make too!

all i can think of is:

the frame on the back of the door
the big white dog
the couch
the central perk logo

oh! or maybe Gladys. The scary woman coming out of the frame, you know, the "art" phoebe made.

maybe the writing on the cake could be "how You doin!"

the fountain from the beginning with them in it or the cup from central perk sitting on the ledge of it?

I like the fountain, but nothing says Friends like Central Perk.
If you were to do a cake with lots of different single items from the show, don't forget to put a Checker Cab on it (Phoebe's grandmothers cab).
And divorce papers for Ross.
A dinosaur.
A jellyfish...... lol remember that one?
a Bloomingdale's Shopping bag for Rachel
A Chef hat for Monica
A sandwich for Joey
A calculator or a tie for Chandler


oh, I got it......... Fat, Ugly, Naked Guy

Oops, I see you did put into your photos already. I started laughing when I saw the "Unagi" phrase on there for Ross. Very good job and you picked perfect quotes for all the guys. You know when a cake makes you smile and laugh because it's so cute, you did good.
