how large are you looking for? A tiered cake design? or something smaller like what was previously linked too (which is beautiful, love the roses)

hi, a tiered cake with some of her life's accomplishments would be nice. Or if a smaller kind of cake, the flower of the month of her b/d. hth

That's amazing. Could you do something from a time in her life..I was thinking something like the roaring 20s ..really vintage..ivory and lace maybe...if she's 100 now she would have been in her teens and early 20s during the late 20s early 30s...just a thought.

I love to take something w/ special meaning to the recipient and build a theme around... a brooch is a great suggestion. Perhaps you could ask a family member for a picture or a description of one that she's worn in the past. If not a brooch, then maybe some other keepsake that would make it over the top, for example playing off of a favorite quilt or embroidery piece or another piece of jewelry and then building your design around that.

Thank you all, am thinking on the lines of a tiered cake with a fondant path along the sides, lite up, with candy clay figures(small) of special events in her life, birth, marriage, kids etc, with a few edible flowers to soften it. hope I can pull it off. have to start this week.
