My best friend's baby shower is in a couple of months but I want to start getting ideas for her cake. At first she kept thinking that she was gonna have a boy, so she wanted a noah's ark cake. Well, when she had her sonogram they told her that she's having a girl. She keep changing her mind on the cake, but I think that she still wants a noah's ark cake if I could make it more girly. Could someone help me come up with something to make it more girly? I did a search online but only found one pic that I liked. I want to make it mine and her own, any ideas? Here's the pic I found: http://www.flickr.com/photos/melycakes/2777316360/in/faves-shanney54/
ok I don't have any visuals for you but,
maybe make the boat itself a soft pink with a darker pink roof? Maybe attach a little banner to the arc that says "the animals all came in 2's to celebrate the new baby girl specially made for/by you!"
ok that was cheesy but ya know what I mean lol.
I just did a Noah's Ark Cake this weekend! And it was totally fun (the pic is uploaded).
I would say do a lighter brown for the wood, and do the roof of the ark in a nice dark pink. I would also use fun, pastel colours for the animals - pinks, greens and yellows.
Depending on how big you need the cake to be, you can also have the ark resting on a pink cake as well.
I hope that helps!!!
Here are a few images that I think look "girly."
Hopefully, one of these will help get some ideas going.
THe picture that you posted the url for is really cute. I also think that the idea the other girl had was a cute one and similiar. I usually start out with one idea and and then once I've started, I start getting all kinds of ideas and the cake becomes my own and the person I was making it for by following the ideas that came to me as I was working. Does that make sense? I hope so. Good luck. maybe you can post us a picture when you get it done to let us see how it turned out.
I did a Noahs Ark cake not to long ago, pics in my gallery, but I did the baby floating in a life preserver beside the boat, you could do something like that with the baby being a girl. Also, I've done a cake with blue toned animals for a boy (also in gallery), you could do something like that with pink animals.
Oh, I think a Noah's Ark cake in girly colors would be lovely! You could also put some strategically places flowers, or maybe put some little ribbons & bows around a few of the animals' necks.
Thank you for all of the suggestions and pictures!!! I really appreciate it (y'all are so nice )!!!!
cakeythings1961 - I really like that idea, it's so simple don't know why I didn't think of that! lol Thank you!
TheMightyQuinn - I don't know about the words on the banner, but she has picked out a name already. Maybe put that on the banner? What do you think?
Bskinne - I think that's a cute idea, too!
I have soo many options to use that I'm gonna have to think about them all! Right now I'm thinking of making the roof pink with some girly animals on the deck. Does that make sense, "girly" animals on a noah's ark cake? Gonna put some flowers on there somewhere. As far as the rest goes I guess I need to talk it over with mommy-to-be! Thank y'all again!!!
Shanney54, I sure hope you'll post a picture of how it turns out....can't wait to see it!
