To my fellow CC Members: I keep trying to get the inspiration for making a cake (three different cake flavors)...it is for an 86 year old man who grew up on a farm and then owned a lumber company...he remembers plowing with a mule, but was a successful businessman... don't you love it when the client says, "Oh! I am leaving it up to you!"..... this is a very influential person in our community, and now I have "CAKE DECORATOR'S BLOCK"... Is anyone out there able to get me thinking in a new way? Cake is for this coming Saturday...

I have looked @ garden cakes, but they are not what I am needing...the farm cakes look like they are more for 'Old McDonald"... what to do? what to do?

What did the farm produce? I'd start there.
I would do the bottom tier covered in lumber.. almost like a fence.
(so its still farm like but goes with his other business)
Then the next layer with whatever his farm actually produced.
I would make the 2nd tier so i had a good 2 inches of
space around so I can 'plant' my crops there.
Maybe make the top layer like a sky and have a crop duster flying
through the layer with a banner running behind it with whatever the
occassion is.

Cute Idea! Wonder how it would look in a 'step cake'? You know, higher levels stepping down to lower?
