My daughter is getting knighted in Military School in 2 weeks. I have been asked to do the cake for the reception following the ceremony. I need to serve 200 people. Please let me know your thoughts on my idea and any extra information or suggestions you have are greatly appreciated. I will be using the oval pan set.

4-tier cake
4th tier....strawberry with chocolate filling and strawberry cream cheese frosting
3rd tier...chocolate cake with chocolate frosting inside and white chocolate frosting on the outside
2nd velvet cake with lemon filling and cream cheese frosting on the outside
1st tier....WASC with strawberry cream cheese filling and white chocolate frosting on the outside

The cake will be iced in bc of course. So I need to find some sort of decorations to go on it. HELP!!!!!

I don't know much about knighting in military school, but don't they 'knight' someone by touching a sword on their head? Could you somehow incoporate a sword made of fondant into the decorations? You could do a very 'medieval' theme - goblet for toasting etc...

Congrats to your daughter icon_smile.gif ...and good luck - sounds like a big project!
Please post photos after.

If you good at making figures you could make a figure of a cadet being knighted, or crossed swords. Another idea is to make an edible image of the military school's crest, or write out their creed on the cake tiers.

Good Luck.

I don't have to worry about this now. As I was working on ideas after being asked, another PTSA member ordered the cakes. Kind of bummed out about this, but not going to let it stop me.
