My suggestion would be to go to the gallery section here on CC and do a search. Just put in the term "circus" and see what comes up. There have been many lovely circus cakes here. You could also do a google search for "circus cakes". This is the way I get ideas for my cakes. I don't often copy a cake exactly, but I get a lot of designs by taking one element from one cake, one or two from another and so on, until it's right in my mind (and all within my skill range, of course!). HTH

I have a clown/circus cake in my pictures. It was a simple two tiered bc cake with fondant accents, and I made the fondant clown topper. I would have made some fondant circus animals, but the mom did not want to pay extra for me to make them. I think this cake served 40, but you could make a similar design to serve 60. HTH!

I know this has nothing to do with the cake but make sure you check out Micheals. They have a ton of Circus themed stuff in thier dollar section.

The have goodie bags, Masks and cupcake liners and some other stuff
