I have a customer that wants a cake that looks similar to this one pictured below, but in the form of a full sheet cake for her DD graduation?

How would I do that?

Thanks for any/all suggestions

Maybe do the stripes on the sides of the cake and the polka dots on top. Maybe incorporate some of the swirls in with the polka dots? You could do the border the same way of course. You're one talented lady and I'm sure you will make it work thumbs_up.gif

maybe do the stripes on the sides of the cake and the circles and swirles on the top with the daisies in the corners.

mama has a great idea! thumbs_up.gif You could also add some of the flowers to the four (two) corners of the cake?

they don't want the flowers, just the decorations and it's going to be all buttercream and they want "Congratulations Heather, Class of 2010" written on it too!!!

OK......I used your ideas (I couldn't figure out how to make 3 cakes into 2 sides of 1 cake lol) I love the idea........now that I see the sketch I think we've got a winner.

Thanks so much you guys, hopefully the customer will love it too!!!

I"ll let you know!


Oh by the way, I had to make a sketch for a 3 tiered square cake with these decorations but different colors today too....so I think that is why I was stuck on the 3 cakes, 2 sides thing! lol
