i recently got asked to make a cake that reflected the 1930s era. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm leaning towards 1930s fashion since it is for a lady..but I have no idea where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I would look at movies that came out during that time period.

you could do a record player, and records, and put the name of a popular album on the record player, and make a few records off to the side with other popular album names

Totally agree with the art deco design. Record players and records are more of a 50's thing.

The idea of 1930's fashion is great - especially if the cake is for a lady.

Humm. The 30's were a turbulent period. The great depression, FDR was president, the new deal, and the rise of Adolph Hitler. There were some great films "It happened one Night, "Animal Crackers," King Kong." Mae West and Charlie Chaplin also were a part of the period. You could just do Hollywood of the thirties. Art Deco was just a small part of it.

Feathers, fringing, beads and art deco patterns are all quite reflective of this era icon_smile.gif

have a look at some of these cakes for inspiration:

bright feather pattern -> http://www.flickr.com/photos/cakechester/4087262702/

art deco + feathers --> http://dev.pandemedia.biz/scattercake/staging/cakes/cake_category.php?category=2&cake=59

probably my favourite one with a funky gumpaste figure icon_smile.gif --> http://www.ideasinicing.com.au/admin/images/FLAPPER.jpg

beads and feathers --> http://artisancakecompany.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Peacock_wedding_cake.jpg

and a nifty painted one, this ones a bit different (softer?) from the rest http://www.flickr.com/photos/neviepiecakes/4502315506/

hope that helps icon_redface.gif [/url]

This is a little more 1920s but maybe it will give you some inspiration: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1898824
