My little guy's 1st grade teacher has been beyond wonderful this year, and I wanted to make her a cake for the end of the year (not for the class, just for her). I already know her flavor selection, and I want to do a school-themed cake (though I tossed around the idea of a bouquet-of-flowers cake as a "thank you").
I also want to incorporate a couple of other ideas that my son wanted, to try to personalize it a bit ... she's a HUGE Dallas Cowboy fan, though I know it's not football season; I thought I could also add the logo of her college, since she's a hardcore fan of her alma mater, and she loves hawaiian themes (her classroom is decorated like that).
So, not to try to make this the most scatter-brained cake ever, but somehow make this school-centered and add details ... but on what? Gumpaste notebooks? I can't really put them on "pens" (not big enough) ... and would it be over a chalkboard background, or something different?
Sorry ... dry brain right now, need some inspiration from creative people .

For me, I think pick one theme and go with it. What if you had the class picture printed as an edible image? The kids might get really excited about that.
Could you do a square, couple layers atleast for height and put things all around the sides that she likes......and on top make a lei of flowers and maybe an apple?
