SO it doesnt sound that bad except she wants 2 different cakes but in the same color family. I was asked for 2 round 12 in cakes different shades of blue and a winnie the pooh theme. Normally i have no trouble but do have 2 cakes that are the same but different and the same color ahh im blanking out it doesnt help its the same due date as my own daughter cake and my nephews the next day. Anybody with ideas thank you im having a duhhhh kind of week
You could do the cakes with the same blue background, and then do a different pooh scene on each one. Hope that helps!
Your question caught my eye because I did a Winnie the Pooh cake for my niece's baby shower.
I like princess_09's idea about two similar cakes, but each with a different Pooh scene. Maybe slightly different shades of blue as the base. Here is a link to my cake, but be sure to search for Winnie and Pooh and there are many, many wonderful Pooh cakes in the galleries. http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1386952/1386955
Mine had a chocolate transfer scene on the side, but maybe you could put large ones on top...or maybe Frozen Buttercream Transfer on top FBCT. I'm just more comfortable with the chocolate and they can be done way in advance. For info on chocolate transfers, search the forum threads (chocolate transfer pulls up a ton), but here's one I participated in way back. http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-671110-chocolate.html+transfer
I've never done FBCT, but a search of the forums should also pull up a lot of info for you.
