My daughter will be 19 and my nephew will be 14 on the 4th of july i usually make 2 different cakes to fit each personality but this year they dont need seperate cakes... any suggestions on how to decorate a cake for the 2 together? [/b]
One cake for 2 people on the 4th of July- I would be tempted to do an over the top 4th of July cake. Trying to get two personalized effects on one cake could be a bit schizophrenic.
I agree with Narie. I think a fantastic stars and stripes cake would be the way to go!
You could do the July 4th theme with one side all girlie & one side more masculine. Maybe using the standard wilton star cutters for his & then cut them to be more pointed & dainty for her's? You could glitter her side & not his? Just an idea...
I'm leaning towards a 2 tier cake, one tier for each birthday recipient.
My personal opinion would be to not do a red, white, and blue 4th of July theme. It just seems to detract away from their special day and seems to be a cake for the entire family. After all, I wouldn't make a Christmas themed cake for a birthday party on Christmas.
I'm with TUG... the red, white and blue although beautiful on our Country's Flag will totally steal the Bday Thunder! If the cake girls did quintuplets on one cake I am sure you can do 2 tiers for the 2 Bday "kids". Maybe add a sparkling candles if you really want the 4th "effect". Good luck!
Yeah I'd totally skip the 4th of July part of the design... I mean really how much can you do with it? Most 4th designs are pretty much the same.
I'd do maybe a two tier with different designs but complementing color schemes. That way, each can have their own part of the cake but still one cake.
