I am making a graduation cake for a girl who is going to school to be a physicians assistant, however, growing up she always wanted to be a pig farmer! Her mother really wants me to incorporate both of these into the cake. Having a decorators block!
Any ideas will be much appreciated....
Dress the animals up in little white coats.. I'm being serious here..lol My nephew and his wife have a baby shower coming up on Aug 7th. They told me they want sports and animals on the cake.. EHHH? SERIOUSLY? So I decided to make little jerseys for the animals and have them playing basketball..
i like that idea The little pigs in the little white coats
whoa -- that's an awesome idea!!!
Going the other direction, you could do one of those scrub-top cakes and make the scrubs have pigs in the design.
Or you could do a sick/ injured cartoon pig with a crutch and a thermometer in his mouth, and water bottle on the head, etc.
Ooooh -- could you do something with a piggy bank? Maybe that says "college fund" on it...? Could do it sitting on top of a stack of books with titles related to her studies?
fun ideas so far....it only has to serve 50 so it doesn't have to be huge, anything else?
how about something with a stethoscope with the round part a pig snout?
Do a 3D pig in a doctors coat- scope around neck, pens in pocket- you can use one of those bear pans to get a starting shape and then ice it. Or carve it. I like the piggies dressed up idea too.
Or maybe have her doing house calls to the pig pen...she's not a vet but using the comparison. The cake is the 'sty' and she is a little figurine with a sick little pig laying belly up in the muck...on second thought maybe not so appetizing!
I LOVE ALL THESE IDEAS!!!
Wow! So many great ideas!
