I am doing a single cake for my Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Laws Birthdays and need help with ideas to appease both. She wants something pretty with flowers, and he would appreciate anything hunting, fishing, or firefighting. Should I do a two layer with one layer for each? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! icon_smile.gif

I picture a flower explosion on one side of the cake with a curved stream going down the middle...on the other side is a little boat and a fishing rod. You could write Happy Birthday and their names going around the sides of the two layered cake.

Maybe a garden sign with her name on it stuck in the flowers and put his name on the boat?

I really like Chasey's idea, but I think her name should be on the boat since vessels are female and all... just sayin'. icon_wink.gif

This actually sounds like a cake I should make for my parents' 30th anniversary later this year... more things to consider.

LOL! Good point. Put her name on the boat and put FIL name LOVES MIL name on the garden sign. thumbs_up.gif
