I need some ideas for decorating this cake. The client is a Navy Chief and his wife wants a Navy themed cake but wants it to look like a birthday cake. She want it decorated with gold anchors and red, white, and blue stars. The bottom is round cake and the top is sqaure. I guess I need to know how to incorporate what she wants and make it birthday too!! Any ideas would be much appreciated! I am also trying to figure out how to tie in the colors...gold with red, white and blue, just doesn't sound very appealing to the eyes!
Did you do a search on this site? I typed in NAVY and did a search and got 34 pages of pictures. Maybe you could get some inspiration from one of those. I know it is hard sometimes when non-decorators try to tell you what they want. I'm sure you don't want anything childish on a cake for someone in his position. Maybe you could suggest something different and see if the wife will be agreeable. HTH some.
I would use some gold roping like the Navy insignia has on it, around the base of the tiers. Also you might want to do the actual insignia.
