I got a strange request for a cake and I'm having a lot of trouble thinking of how to decorate the base cake. The cake is going to have four stacks of money, a watch, and a bandana over one corner. I've got an 8" square to make the money stacks out of and a 12 inch square, just 2" tall, for the base.
I was thinking about cutting the 12" in half and stacking it to make a shoe box, but this cake is for a guy and I don't know if that'll be too small of a shoe box for a guy, or too "girly".
any ideas on what I should do with the 12"?
anyone have any ideas? I'm desperate here!
Why don't you just make the base look like wood and have the stuff sitting on top of it? (Cigar box, maybe?)
or a table top? is he a smoker? a ashtray-often times people use them to put their keys and such. how about a simple stylish tray or serving platter? silver? let us know what you decide!!
Cigar box is perfect! thanks so much!
finished product is in my photos!
