Hey guys!

I'm having trouble coming up with an original take on this cake for a bachelorette party that'll be coming up in a couple of months (I know, WAY ahead of time, but I'm feeling pretty idea-dry right now icon_wink.gif ). It's going to be held at a pole-dancing studio, where the participants will be given a pole-dancing class .... which sounds like a blast, as long as it's just us girls, hehe, but I want to incorporate that into the theme and am having trouble getting past the tired pole-dancing cut-out silhouette mounted on top of a cake. I usually work with fondant, and love making figurines and details and such (look at my pics to get an idea of the sort of thing I like to do, if you like), but I want to stay away from the very obvious pole dancer on top of the cake ... not that I can't incorporate a pole dancer, just want to make it unique somehow. The bride is very girly, into a lot of bling and pink, so I'll be using that (probably isomalt jewels or something), but am a little clueless as to the exact execution.

Thanks for any suggestions, guys!!!

How about a fold-up chair with a mirror behind it placed on a dance floor with feather boas layed out every where? Implies the dancing but more burlesque like, if that makes sense

Sorry, it didn't alert me that I'd had a reply and I just now saw this! Thanks for your suggestions, I love the idea of the boas in particular! Any other ideas out there?
