The first thing I'd recommend you do is ask her what elements of 'gangster' she wants on the cake, then type "gangster cake images" or "xxxxx cake images" (if she gives you an idea of a specific gangster item, eg gun) into a Google search!!

I often do hours of research this way - not just looking at cakes, but actual images that can help inspire me to make a cool, but different, cake.

well i guess that all depends on what kind of gangster....Ive been to Zoot suit themed weddings..where the men wore zoot suits and instead of a limo used old bomb cars...they had a basic white butter cream wedding cake.

I think we need more information

My hsusband suggested doing a black and white pinstripe on the cake and maybe incorporating red in the flowers or make something that looks like a red handkerchief in the mans suit pocket. He said it was the first thing that came to mind when you said gangster.

Yes, I think the first one couldn't be more perfect for the theme.

I found the theme featured on a blog, too. But they have a simple cake.

I'm doing a Gangster themed 60th... Stay tuned. I'll be posting pics on Saturday. It is 3 tier. Bottom two tiers are black with white pinstripe. Red border at the base of the tiers. A gangster style hat is the top tier.

There will be a tommy gun on the cake and I had $100 bill edible images printed where I replaced the face of Ben Franklin with the face of the recipient. I'll have a stack of money and some scattered bills.
