I am making a cake for a first birthday party for a boy. Mom gave me the invitation to base the cake on. My first idea was to build a crib using chocolate or RI for the top of the cake. The crib would have wires inserted with the word "PARTY" spelled out on each wire (make sense?) along with starts to match the invite.
The problem is that the cake is an 11x15 sheet cake and I'm just not sure how that would look. I've been pondering over this for a few days and I feel like I'm going in circles. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I get it and I think it would be nice if you took your idea a step further. Decorate the top with maybe a rug out of fondant in the center of cake in one of the colors with child's name spelled out in alternating colors and a few stars on top or inlayed (personalized rug). Place crib in center or caticorner (sp?) on the rug and maybe some baby things here and there. Hope this helps.
If you're looking for a crib template, I just found this one at a woodworking site and adapted it to make the crib here.

Artscallion, your crib is precious! I just added the plans to my favorites just in case I need to make a crib in the future. Thanks!
