I have a request for a groom's cake for a piano(preferably grand), not a big deal, BUT...the groom proposed to the bride while fishing and they would like that to be incorporated as well. They want classy, not tacky. I am at a loss. Please help!!!!!

This might sound insane, but as soon as I saw the topic piano and fishing I immediately thought of a grand piano, with the groom sitting on the stool in front of it. The top of the piano is up and the inside is full of "water" The groom has a fishing rod, and is fishing inside the piano, and the bride is sitting or standing beside the piano. I am crazy?...........probably!

Anyway I hope this helps! Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif

JamAndButtercream, I had the same thought as soon as I saw the topic subject too, (minus the bride and groom) so if we're crazy, at least we aren't alone! lol

The other thought I had was the piano by a pond with cattails and wildflowers and trees...a romantic pond setting.

Found this. Doesn't seem to have the "fishing pond" feel to it, like your couple is looking for, but maybe this will spur some ideas.

You could do the cake as the "pond" and have the piano floating on a lily pad with the groom sitting on top, fishing off the side.

JamAndButtercream I had a picture of a guy fishing in the top of a piano also!

I'm with SarahBeth3 with the piano by the pond idea. I picture both of them fishing off the back of the bench (facing the pond, not the piano), leaning up against each other, with an engagement ring on her hook.

...and the music on the piano could be "Love Story" or whatever song has meaning to them. Oh, I love this one! Can I make this cake for you? LOLOL...

My first thought was of the guy sitting on the back of the piano, fishing into a lake below... so maybe the piano is sitting on a lake front.

I would LOVE to see what you end up with!

You could put the pond in the open piano with a fish jumping out of it.

Thanks everybody, I knew I could count on ya'll for some great ideas. When they told me what they wanted, I immediately thought of The Princess and the Frog.
@ jamandbuttercream and sarabeth3....i like that idea, I never would have thought of that.

@ cakeuhlicious
My husband suggested something similar, except the bride and groom were frogs fishing.

This will be my first groom's cake(hopefully my break into wedding cakes), and they have not specified how large they want the cake to be. The wedding will be no more than 150 people and there will be a wedding cake so how many servings should the groom's cake be? Thanks!
