What kind of cake do you do for a lady who lives on a ranch and works for the women's shelter??? Can't be major detailed, have only so much time to fit it in between now and Saturday morning.

Red bandana pattern? Polka-dots are always a hit..

Thanks KristyCakes, that is a good starting idea, now I just need to incorporate the women's shelter part.

Is there a logo for the shelter where she works?

Yes, they do have a logo and it is pretty basic.

It is a horse ranch, I can use the logo for the shelter just trying to figure out the ranch part to go with it.

A gum paste girl in western boots holding a sign with the logo of the shelter or a quote about "empowering women" or something?

I saw red bandana wrapping paper at Dollar General the other day.....cover the cake board with that, do a square cake with the logo on the top and then maybe do a "wooden coral fence" w/ brown icing or fondant around the sides of the cake?

I just keep getting this thought about putting some butterflies. Something about her helping people change their lives....butterflies = change....

Just throwing it out there.

I like KHalstead's idea.

How about a 2D cake or flat picture on a sheet cake of a cowboy boot with a saying about kicking violence to the curb? (if that would be relevent to the type of shelter she works at)

KHalstead & jammjenks, I like both of your ideas, thank you so much!!! I just couldn't wrap my brain around putting the two together.
